I have seen whole durian fruits (I don't know whether they were defrosted or not)on display for sale in Asian grocer shops of Adelaide Chinatown, Asian grocers of Perth Northbridge & Vietnamese grocers of Girraween (WA). Also, I saw whole durian fruits in Asian shops in Sydney Haymarket/Chinatown and in Kensington (NSW). So, if you buy those fruits, you could plant from the seeds of the durians, although the seedlings may not be true to type like the parent fruit. From what little I know, if a durian fruit fall/drop off a tree, then it is just ripe for eating. That was the way things were in the past - durian growers collect the fallen fruits from the ground each dawn and cart them to sell in the morning markets ..... it was a hazzardous job as there were a fair few injuries from being hit by a falling durian fruit. For commercial purposes these days, durians are 'pre-harvested' from the tree before they are fully ripe and artificially ripened, and such durians have less flavour or taste.
