One of the most popular durian varieties, the D24 durian has a pale yellow flesh with a rich and creamy texture. The thorns of the D24 durian are often clustered together on its greenish-yellow shell. Before the introduction of the Mao Shan Wang variety, the D24 durian was the most famous durian. It has a light bitter taste that is not too strong, making it great for new durian lovers to try. It has a ‘neutral’ flavor that is neither too sweet nor too bitter which is a characteristic of other varieties of durian. Because of this, the D24 durian is also one of the favorite variants that is used for durian desserts and other pastries.
