Black Thorn

GEORGE TOWN: A durian shop at Jalan Macalister, which went viral on social media for selling three durians for almost RM1,000 (RM937), was slapped with a RM2,000 compound for displaying confusing price tags which were not written in Bahasa Malaysia. Durian fruit is used to flavour a wide variety of sweet edibles such as traditional Malay candy, ice kacang , dodol , lempuk, 56 rose biscuits, ice cream , milkshakes , mooncakes , Yule logs , and cappuccino Es durian (durian ice cream) is a popular dessert in Indonesia, sold at street side stall in Indonesian cities, especially in Java.
The durian got its name because the tips of the thorns on this variety tends to be darker. If you think that Singapore only has two durian d24 seasons - hot and hotter - you're not wrong, but we'd much prefer thinking of it as durian season and no-durian season instead.

Pow was instrumental in getting Leow to participate in the competition and even went to the extent of collecting fruits from Leow's farm (and a few other Penang farms) and driving down to Bangi on the day of the competition to deliver them to the organisers.
Riding on the hype of the Shah Alam Durian Cendol, the Durian King has their own twist to their version with that gorgeous Black Thorn on top of it. I must say the star of the whole bowl is definitely still the durian while the cendol still needs some tweaks to it. Since they have just started, I am sure after some modification, this bowl of cendol would be the best dessert on a hot day.

Get your fix for cheap with D13 durians priced at three for $10 or $5. If it's the premium stuff you're after, MSW durians are priced at $15 per kg, Golden Phoenix at $18 per kg and the rare Hulu King at $22 per kg. Beyond durian, you are also able to browse their wide array of other fresh fruits as well.
Market price is higher than Musang King. A rarer taste, which according to Durian Seng is found only in durians from older trees eaten within 30 minutes of their fall, is a fleeting numbing” quality felt on the tongue and lips. Famous food critic from Hong Kong Chua Lam and his group purposely visited Penang to taste this fancy fruit.
With D101, its mild yet amazingly sweet aroma does not take away your chance to indulge in durians. For example, old durian plantations across Asia, never plundered for mass farming, often have unusual pedigreed trees particular to the region, microclimate or even land plot.

Although there were some repeat winners - Eric Chan's Dulai Fruits once again nabbed the prize for best Musang King and Tekka, there were also some new faces. However if you are cravings for this king of fruits - durian - Durian King located behind Berjaya Times Square can give you some satisfaction at the moment.
The photo, which has been shared more than 85 times, shows four durian fruit with black husks, alongside a caption that states: New durian species, Blackthorn”. The flesh is not as thick as Musang King so it is lighter in texture and it also has the slight bitter after taste like XO durian.

I tell all this to the group as I line up three more durians for them to taste. The taste is in between of Musang King and XO durian variety. He planted kampung durians and only started planting D24 and 101 durians later on. Two of the top variants, the Musang King & Black Thorn Durians are in town.
Through their thorough inspection of its shape, husk and thorns of the durian fruit to ensure that it reaches the precise grade to be graded into the Black Thorn Premium category. Black Thorn really is a lot like Red Prawn in the most important way: when the tree is young, the both fruits are really sweet, which is just fine if strawberry and cream lozenges are your thing.

Most of the Mao Shan Wang that you see are good sized fruits which have been pre-selected. With Mao Shan Wang, durian farmers started to earn a profit,” he said. The p
