Durians for sale


Fresh durians

Here’s a large crate of the durians I previously mentioned. The previous post didn’t show the outside so here it is. Notice the very sharp and hard spikes. Yes, people do get injured from durians. When the vendors open them they wear very thick gloves and use a huge machete. Before they open a durian they use a long stick to tap it and listen for a hollow sound. If it gives a hollow thump, it should be ripe! Some customers will even take control of the stick whacking themselves as everyone is in search of the perfect durian.
