No fruit excels quite like durian in its multifaceted flavour with its own delightfully distinguishing pungency, chewy texture, and lengthy finish aftertaste.
If you didn’t get to satisfy your durian cravings during the durian season last June, we’ve got good news for you. In a report by the Straits Times, we are currently in the middle of a durian supply spike. Bumper harvests from plantations in the Malaysian states of Pahang, Johor and Genting Highlands have resulted in plummeting durian prices.
