With the creation of modern technology that allows for mankind to be able to create and modify existing species of plants (and animals), there is less and less dependence on the seasons to bear certain kinds of fruits. One of the fruits in question is the ever-popular durian, which is also known as the “King of Fruits”. The best durians are still found during the original durian season from June to August, but now that one is able to find durians just about every day, it has led to a slight wane in the craze that once surrounded this very Malaysian treat.

Back then, whenever the season rolls around (or was about to arrive), there would be a crowd flocking the stalls or supermarkets selling durians. Led by their noses that have been honed by years of experience in sniffing out only the best in the species, they would bring home their prizes to be shared amongst family and friends. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying the durian’s beloved, almost cult status in the country.
