How to choose a delicious durian?

There are numerous species of durian so as their characteristics. However, no matter which species you like, make sure you know how to choice the ‘good’ one from the pile of durians and to taste the best of it! Here are some guidelines for your reference:
  • There are many kinds of durians such as bitter-with-sweetness, sweet-after-bitterness and taste of chocolate and wine. As an expert of eating durian, you should try the sweet one first, then the bitter one. For example, eat the sweet D101 first, then D22, sweet-with-bitterness, finally the bitter but with strong fragrance, Thraka.
  • Among different species of durians, the first requirement is a “good” stalk. It should be greenish with moisture. That means the durian is just detached from the tree. Freshness is more important than anything!
  • Check if there are pest on the husk of the durian. If there are pest on it, that means no pesticides are used during farming. Please buy it at once as this durian is valuable and in high quality.
  • Bitter or bitter-with-sweetness durians are always with strong smell that may irritate your nose. For the durians releasing fruity smell, it belongs to the sweet species of durians. Also the smell should be distributed around the durian. Scent only come from one side of the durian indicates that the durian is not completely mature.
  • Finally the ripened durians will have sounds when being shaken as the pulp and the husk are separated. The durian is ready for degusting.
