I was invited by the rich Tai-Tai aunty of my wife to eat durians last night. I arrived in heavens instantly as it was the best durians I have tasted for the 3rd year now. This year's harvest is better due to the long spell of hot and dry weather that helped to produce durians with stronger fragrance and texture! I felt that it tasted a bit of alcohol due to its strong carbo reactions.
Yes, they drove all the way to Raub, Pahang to collect their carload full of Grade A - Musang King durians from a private durian orchard. The seller or land owner only deals with pre-orders from familiar friends and clients from faraway overseas! They claimed that you could no longer get them anywhere else now from these same-seedling trees for its top notch quality as regular buyers book them all before harvests.
What surprised me was this well known orchard sends yearly supplies to Macau's Stanley Ho who would also share the durians with his HKG's buddy Li Ka Shing. You can read the rest of the story HEREhttp://www.thestar.com.my/story.aspx/?file=%2f2010%2f8%2f7%2fcentral%2f6805195&sec=central
