This is the best time to buy durians

You have to pick up the durian yourself to know if it’s good. We prodded several durian stall owners to reveal their methods of identifying good durians, but most were unwilling to disclose their trade secrets.

What we heard the most was: ‘As long as you are buying a durian from us, we guarantee that it will be a good one.’ We’ll believe it when we taste it, uncle. That said, if you've been going back to the same uncle for years, and been getting consistently good durians from him, do share the info.
