From the Burpple community

Went Geylang for dinner with my family. Decided to just swing by a durian stall nearby for durians since it is the durian season now.

Along Geylang, there is a stretch of durian stalls and this is the very first one.

I was browsing and looking at the red prawns durians when I realised the excited sellers had already gotten/ chosen/ opened two huge durians for my hub.

Weighing the durians, the seller showed us the scale. Over 7kg for two large durians. Then, he dropped the bombshell-more than $200?! I balked at the price, while trying to grapple with what was going on amidst the ongoing talking and excitement.

The seller did display the price of the so-called premium MSW durians ($30/ kg).

I tried to tell them there’s only 4 of us (we just had dinner btw) and we don’t need 7 kg of durians. Maybe we will just take one. (In fact, I didn’t even want to get a durian from the $30/kg stack of durians. There’s a stack of MSW durians going for $22/kg. Can choose from there what... but, oh well!)

Market price varies but even Combat Durian MSW durian prices has dropped from $22 (when I last ate 1-2 wks ago) to $15/ kg now.

Anyway, hurriedly, the sellers ‘threw in’ another half a (small) durian and a Thai coconut and sealed the deal with my hub.

I’m not a durian connoisseur but the $30 MSW durians tasted like all other average MSW durians I have tried in terms of aroma, sweetness, texture, and flavour.

To be fair, I can’t say we were cheated since the price was clearly displayed and we were shown the weight of the durians on the weighing scale. Yet, I can’t help but felt we were fleeced in a way. Sort of.

Being hurried into buying such overpriced durians clearly shows that it is all about maximising profits/ money here.

A very very unpleasant experience.

Wondering if Durians are on Burpple....
Mao shan wang, 1 kg $28 is quite expensive but delicious.
