Fresh durian you can only purchase in Tropical countries, what we usually get here is over ripened Durian. If its a super soft/mushy consistency then its well over ripened. It should be smooth yet firm like butter..
I just brought back from Thailand: Mango's, Mangosteens & Dragon Fruit. So if you have a relative coming from Asia, get them to import some.. Just remember to declare it..
I am pretty sure they don't sell fresh durian in Vancouver but there are frozen ones. I bought this frozen packaged durian at T&T yesterday and the name had the word madame in it if i am not mistaken. It is in a black package and it wasnt very good...so try and buy the whole durians ( didn't see any in T&T yesterday).
Kinda OT but when I was visiting Thailand I kept seeing these signs all over, pretty interesting how it's pretty much the same grade as smoking.
Infact I actually went into some hotels that allowed smoking but the elevator showed:
Gotta admit the smell is quite overwhelming but tastes ok. Wouldn't specifically get it though.
I would try those stores in Chinatown. Although as mentioned the ones in Vancouver would definitely be over-ripe.
Durian so good. It is an acquired taste. When you're hooked, there's no getting out of it. Even some people from tropical countries are not into them due to the strong smell and mushy texture.
The frozen durian they sell in T&T is pretty good for making smoothies. Little bit of milk, little bit of ice, add a bit of mango for kick. 88 supermarket / chong lee always carries some of the rarer tropical fruits if you're into them.
you can buy fresh durian in alot of places in Vancouver. My Tho Supermarket on kingsway, Victoria 88 on victoria and 32nd and hen long market near guildford. They are all airflown in and come in about 3days field to retail
FYI: Durian is sprayed with pesticides when entering Canada.
Not trying to be rude, but so what? You don't eat the exterior of the fruit...
