The harvest quality of durians ranges throughout the season, so you know you’re getting the good stuff when a seller only has durians in limited quantities.
99 Old Trees Durian only sells stock that passes their quality checks so you know that the D24, S17, Jin Feng and MSW you’re getting will hit the spot. Each 700G box starts from $40 and you can even get 1KG of durian pulp from $48 to make durian desserts like mousse and puffs at home.
Delivery: $6.90 delivery fee

Durian Kingdom Singapore is a humble home business that has a loyal following for their durians – just check out the reviews on their Facebook page. For prices of their available durians, drop them a message on FB Messenger and you’ll receive an automated price list.
Here, you can expect Red Prawn, D101, and MSW variants from $15/KG. Look out for their elusive Black Pearl variant – its slightly bitter and creamy flesh makes it an addictive choice.
Do note that there’s a minimum order of 6KG which roughly gives you two boxes of durians, which can be easily demolished by you and your family.
Delivery: Free delivery included in all orders
For a wide range of durian varieties, Melvin’s Durian has MSW, Jin Feng, Black Pearl, Mini Ku Wang, D1, D13, and more from $11/KG. If you’re hosting a durian party at home, you can take advantage of their bundle deals that start from $98 for 6KG up to $288 for 12KG.
They also have a fruit shop called The Fruit Cartel where you can order premium fruits like Japanese peaches, Kyoto grapes and Rainier cherries delivered to you.
Delivery: $12 islandwide delivery, free for orders above $80.
Ah Seng Durian’s selections are pretty high in demand, so you have to reserve a delivery slot fast to avoid disappointment.
Their Facebook and IG pages are updated almost daily with the price list of durians that are in stock. Some common varieties they sell include MSW and D13 as well as more uncommon varieties like Golden Phoenix and XO from $15/KG. You can also get homemade lime and sour plum concentrate for drinks ($13/bottle) along with your order.

Durian Papi specialises in MSW durians that come straight from their plantation in Pahang, Malaysia. What’s different about them is that they vacuum-seal and freeze their durians immediately after dehusking, keeping the fruit fresh for longer periods of time.
Because of this, their durians can be kept for up to one year unopened – perfect for when you want to indulge in durians off-season.
Each 400G box costs $45 and can be shared between two – three pax. For those who want to have an MSW stash in their freezer, you’ll be glad to know that with each order of six boxes, you’ll get an extra box for free.
Delivery: Free for all orders, same-day delivery for orders made before 6PM
When durian season rolls around, nothing beats going to a durian store and huddling over a freshly opened durian to taste its treasures within. But for now, staying home and having the king of fruits delivered to you feels like the royal treatment too.
