Vieri:

Another session?

ON! But not this batch. The better ones should be available end Apr/early May. Mountain King Cat is at $18/kg currently. Supply dwindled.
So, patience is a good virtue.:)

In case the Hougang place has no stock, does anyone else have suggestions for this weekend to enjoy durians?

Durians in low stocks right now... my contact in Hougang had to send me to Serangoon to get another contact for this Sunday... prices are more than buying a BR disc!

The price of good fruits....

Yes, that place is very good. I used to live within 20m of that place.

I think the prices are a little ex, though the fruit is normally of very good quality so more reassuring.

This morning had a rude shock when a neighbourhood durian seller told me cat mountain king relegated to 3rd position in the last durian competition. Coming in first place is 'Ji Dan Wang' (egg yolk) and then the small seed 'lin feng jiao'. I immediately bought the egg yolk durian. Just finished it all and now posting.

I don't think it deserve as champion. Texture is soft, bitter with sweet aromatic aftertaste. Seed rather big and shell a tad thick (not favourable for weighing). Bought at 12/kg. Whereas my usual Cat Mountain King is still preferred for its small seeds, more defined and consistent taste. I don't get CMK for more than 10/kg, else it is a rip off.

My other favorites are D2 (really difficult to find good ones due to quality inconsistency) but managed to have a good one with Bro Giraffe 3 days ago. Another good one that only comes in small harvests is the 'Kun Bao' which is a failed champion breed. Will get it whenever it comes.

Did you observe more and more CMK selling and in packets?
Supply seems to outstrip supply now. I hope it does not become a situation like D24 - where every planter blatantly plant it, and quality hence suffers thereafter.
