Yes, I would like to share with readers about the varieties in Malaysia that are well known for uniqueness and quality.
|Know your durians: The Tracka durian has a visible gap in the heart of the fruit.|
- D-varities: D13, D18, D20, D88, D96, D101
- Tawa, Tembaga, Mas Johor, Mas Pahang, Kampung durian, Udang Merah, Raja Kunyit
The Tracka durian, for example, is recognisable by the visible gap in the heart of the fruit and its deep yellow coloured pulp, which has a sweet yet slightly bitter taste.
Then there are the sweet but small seeded varieties, like the Jiuji and D96; and for those who relish a luxurious mouthful, there is the Raja Kunyit and the Udang Merah, which has a slight tinge of red in its rich yellow pulp. Another rare but popular choice is the XO, named for its pale, bitter flesh.
- Consuming durians with alcohol is also not advised.
