Tips for buying durians in Singapore
• The best way to get your hands on the thorny fruit is to order in advance. Call, WhatsApp, or Direct Message your seller of choice to reserve your durians. Otherwise, you’ll likely be disappointed when you show up at the store.
• Be wary of dishonest sellers, be it on Carousell or at durian stores. It’s not unheard of for sellers to pass other durian species off as Mao Shan Wang, push rejected fruits, or even give you unripe or rotten ones. To get the most bang for your buck, read online reviews or ask for the entire fruit to be opened at the shop. At least you’ll get to see a new fruit opened and you can also see if it’s unripe or rotten.
