It’s the most wonderful time of the year…not Christmas but DURIAN SEASON!!!

With modernity favoring convenience, as a standard practice, durians are still sold by the side of a road but stored in plastic containers upon purchase.

A Herbivore in Penang is not able to

  • recommend stalls
  • pick fresh durians
  • open fresh durians

The above activities are left for the durian whisperers in our lives but we know a good one when we eat it!!!

“Musang King aka Nasi Kunyit”

“Khun Poh”

White flesh -name unknown. Taste – bitter sweet

Yellow flesh – name unknown. Taste – smooth and sweet


“Lin Fong Chou”


Best time: End of June till mid July
