Rejoice, durian lovers! It's the middle of the year, which also means it's durian season!
Things will go about a little differently this year though. With the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) still in place, we can't all expect to crowd outdoors to enjoy that creamy goodness.
The good news is that, according to Malay Mail, the Malaysian Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) has encouraged durian retailers to step out of their comfort zone and embrace the new normal.
Therefore, many durian sellers have now gone online to get their products more easily to us!
1. Tip Top Durian
Tip Top Durian promises to deliver fresh premium durian to your doorstep in 60 minutes.
They have a wide array of varieties available including Musang King, Red Prawn, XO, D101, D11, D15, and more!
They are currently selling box sets of three durians ranging from RM168 to RM238, and larger combos such as the 5kg to 6kg Penang Old Tree Durian Set for RM168 and 8kg to 9kg Penang Champion Award Winning Durian Set for RM288.
2. Durian Bear
Durian Bear offers same-day delivery of hand-picked durians from their farms to their customers.
They are selling packs of D101, D13, and Musang King from as low as RM49 to RM79 for 400g of pure durian pulp.
If that's too little for a feast, you could also get a three-pack combo for RM165.
The shop even guarantees a replacement of brand new durian if your pack arrives at your doorstep sour or unripe.
3. Sinnaco Durian Specialist
Sinnaco Durian Specialist promises to deliver vacuum-packed durians from their farm to you within three hours to maintain the freshness.
Their specialty is in Musang King durians, of which they are currently selling at RM45 per kg.
4. Durian Hill
According to a Facebook post last week, Durian Hill is selling grade AA Musang King for RM55 per kg and grade AAA Musang King for RM65 per kg.
However, they also state that prices are subject to change every day, so you can opt to get a 400g box of Musang King pulp on their online store at RM80 instead.
5. Durian Delivery KL
At one point of the MCO, Durian Delivery KL was selling chilled durians, but since then they have returned to selling fresh ones!
The shop sells both the whole durian or just the pulp of multiple varieties, including Cheng Pi, Capri, XO, Red Prawn, D101, and more. Stay updated on their Facebook page as they will also be bringing in a limited stock of Blackthorn durians soon.
If one durian is not enough, there's also the Mystery Bundle priced at RM150 for 5kg of assorted durian and the Musang King Bundle at RM275 for 5kg of Musang King durians for the whole family.
6. DurianMan SS2
DurianMan SS2 is also offering delivery services as their famous durian buffet outlet is not open for dine-in.
They are selling Red Prawn at RM45 for 300g and Musang King at RM60 for 300g.
7. Donald's Durian
Donald's Durian offers only the best durian with the motto "Quality is our priority".
The shop is currently delivering Musang King and Sultan, but keep an eye on their Facebook page as they will often update if they have other fresh stock for the day.
They offer their fruits at competitive prices which are subject to change according to the daily market.
Donald's Durian will be using third-party services to deliver around Klang Valley. For more information, do not hesitate to contact them via +6012-225 8704 or by Facebook message.
8. SEMOA Educare Centre
Support and buy durian from the SEMOA Educare Centre as proceeds will go towards funding Orang Asli children's education!
The non-governmental organisation is selling durians fresh and straight from a small orchard in Raub, Pahang, so delivery dates will be determined based on the availability of stock.
They are selling two varieties according to these prices:
1.5kg (1 fruit) - RM46/kg
3kg (2 fruits) - RM44/kg
5kg (3-4 fruits) - RM40/kg
