How do I choose durians and a durian shop?


With so many options, what durian should you choose? Definitely, decide what's on top of your priority list:

  1. Quality

  2. Convenience

  3. Price


Take the time to visit and explore some or several of these durian stores - even your neighbourhood durian shop near you. Experience the difference and find what works for you. Picking fresh and good durians are an absolute essential, so here is a guide on how to choose durians.


The taste profile does vary depending on the durian breed. Durians like the D13 and Red Prawn tend to be sweeter. However, Red Prawn durians (which have a light pinkish tone flesh) tend to have medium size seeds while D13 durians (which has a deep orange flesh) tend to have bigger seeds. Bigger seeds = less meat. Hence, D13 durians tend to be cheaper, and it is common for sellers to pass off D13 as Red Prawn to fetch a higher price. So make sure you find reliable D13 and Red Prawn durians for delivery.


On the other hand, "higher grade" durians like the Black Gold, Old Tree and Mao Shan Wang (D197, i.e. Musang King) are some of the most popular durian cultivars in Singapore. They have more rich, intense bittersweet notes, a nice creamy texture, and tend to have smaller and flatter seeds.


But there's absolutely no need to break the bank if you're just satisfying a simple durian craving or starting to explore the King of Fruits. We definitely recommend trying more affordable durian varieties like D13 and Red Prawn before the glorified Mao Shan Wang. That way, you know if you are able to taste the difference and appreciate the complexity of flavours enough to pay the premium.


During the durian season, fruits like rambutan, longan and lychee also tend to be in season. Durian themed desserts like durian swiss rolls, durian ang ku kuehs, durian tau sar piah, mochis, mooncakes and more also begin to surface. So if you're looking to indulge in all kinds of durian treats this season, you might appreciate being able to get all that variety in one order, in one place.
