This could be the best year for durian, as prices has fallen due to a huge supply from a bumper crop in Malaysia.
If you're a fan of Mao Shan Wang, it's selling only for $15/kg when I was at @the_durian_story today. Better still, go for the Black Gold, which is a few grades higher than Mao Shan Wang, at $20/kg (price as of 26 March 2018).
So how does Black Gold taste like? What's most distinctive to me is the creamy alcoholic taste and scent. You don't always get small seed ("yew ji"), but the ones I ate all had a silky texture, and tastes buttery with a bitter aftertaste.
They were bustling with business today. Durians were sold out half an hour after I arrived. We wanted to dabao some back but we couldn't, so we've made reservations and we'll be back tmr to collect them. Reservations are recommended to secure your durian.
