Where to get fresh durian?

Tried T&T, Superstore, Pricemart Foods. They don't have it.

Where can I get some fresh ones?

Thanks

I recall my dad used to get it at those small asian-run market type of stores a few years back.
I would probably check those first.

Aren't they all frozen?

By the time it ships here it would spoil otherwise.

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..

They used to sell fresh Durian (during Durian harvest seasons like Lychees) but I think they smartened up because of the horrendous odour that they now just throw them in the freezer (thank god)

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.

We used to sell flails to TnT in the late 90s, used to be fresh, and they bitch at us not selling well, so no more smelly flails for a long time in Vancouver.
