Not sure about Segamat durians. All i know that the masses of durians being sold in Geylang & Rochor comes from Segamat.
Though Tangkak is very near Segamat, Im aware of this person in Tangkak who owns several hundred acres of durian plantations which is
of superior stock & its no wonder that these durians never made it to Spore.
Ive tried it back in 2007 (cant remember the name of the durian) & its taste is simply exquisite. Now, my fav durian seller tells me of another
plantation that produces these high quality durian in Raub, that's in Pahang.
My definition of good durian - bitter, creamy & gives a lingering after taste. If next day i have sore throat, confirmed its good durian  :P

+1. But unfortunately the flesh is often very skinny with these ones.

Interesting isn't it? other fine foods also share these traits of slight bitterness and creaminess and a long lingering after taste: good coffee and tea, Scotch whiskey, good beer, smoked salmon, good (dark) chocolate, blue cheese....

But sometimes its nice and satisfying to eat a chunky portion of say durian or commercialised chocolate (e.g. a Mars/ Vispa) that is cheaper but more fufilling to the mouth albeit less flavoursome.

For me, the sore throat comes in a few hours. So after the taste is no longer in my mouth. I quickly quaff down some salad, fruits and lots of barley water.

Combat and Sindy (a bit further up the road) are v good.

In fact I've never eaten much durian before and having grownup in an AngMo country just thought they tasted like rotten onions (I know this from my student days :p)

But walking past the above stalls every day and sniffing the smells really turned me to liking them and now I really like them. But I thought the smell was supposed to be offputting and the taste was in the eating, odd isn't it? For me, I don't find it feculent at all, just very fragrant.


Just curious: does anyone think durian tastes better just picked? Or do they travel well?

Most fruits don't travel well and I think are pretty lacklustre in the supermarkets. Take peaches for example, a Mediterranean peach is an amazingly fragrant, juicy and glorious fruit, but if you've never eaten it just after it has been plucked after being allow to ripen on the tree you are missing so much.

Tycoon sends jet to S’pore for durian purchase (the Star)

THE Musang King durian from Malaysia has proven to be so delicious that Stanley Ho, who is Macau’s Gambling King, sent his personal jet to pick up 88 durians from Singapore.

China Press reported that Ho bought about RM4,800 worth of the durian from the 818 Durian Stall in the island republic.

Ho then shared the king of fruits with his friend Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing by giving him 10 durians.

The daily reported that Ho’s worker wanted to buy 98 durians but only managed to get 88 as supply was low due to adverse weather.

In Singapore, the Musang King durian costs about RM38 per kilo, the daily reported.

Hi, can someone share the location of this 818 Durian Stall?

Hey bros
If anyone is keen on a local durian hunt, let me know, say this Saturday or something we can hang out.
Just recommend a good spot - after all we are not all about hi fi alone :)

And if someone know a place in Johor, also let me know. My friends want to do a durian outing during the NDP long weekend, cheers.
Please post instead of sending a pm, so more can learn.
