I saw a durian on the shelf in the local Coles supermarket yesterday, marked as 'Product of Thailand'.

$12 a kilo, and weighed 3.5 kg. I would have bought it if not for the $40 the mega-retailer wanted for it.

I'll have a look to see if it is still there today.

Some Asian supermarkets have named & boxed frozen Durian pillows for under $20 for 500g/ish ~ i reckon they chuck alot out after it thaws and doesn't sell?

Don't buy it. They come in frozen, don't taste of anything at all and the seeds aren't viable.

I bought one once and it was like eating unsweetened papier mache.

Some frozen durian is ok although not as good as fresh obviously. Interestingly it nearly all comes from Thailand labelled as Monthong when you can see plenty is Chanee.

I like to buy the very ripe (soft) durians in BKK and throw them in the icecreammaker with only a pinch of salt.

Tastes the same as fresh ones to me and is half the price.

In Singapore i bought mao shan wang durian icecream which was frozen pieces of it, not even blended, and it was great!

I quite like also eating frozen Durian straight from freezer ~ like gelati ~ then letting it thaw to room temp to get the classic flavour 😉

Thanks for all the 'frozen' advice guys. I originally brought up the imported supermarket version without realising they had previously been frozen.

So thanks Manfred for pointing that out, as that makes a tremendous impact on what Tanya was asking for (that is seed to germinate).

Regardless of taste and texture, I think if produce has been frozen, it ought to be declared at point of sale. Consumers have the right to know. For example, who likes to refreeze produce? How do you manage your own personal storage when that information is not made available? Would a restaurant pass a sanitation audit if they re-froze fruit?

I've seen it several times in Bangkok that huge shops like MAKRO have their freezer department totally defrosted for some reason, everything! It will still be sold as frozen one day though and nobody will complain.

But if i were you i would grow a grafted duriantree..seedlings take 10 years plus get huge...You'll have to prune it nonstop or climb to pick durians...

Grafted durians can fruit in 5 years and stay a lot smaller. I keep mine at 3 meters tall.
