Durian plantation is a creation of Mr. Tan See Thong who has been a Durian enthusiast for a very long time. One visit to the store and it is very easy to know that Mr Tan is a durian fanatic, the way he speaks of the produce will have you loving it before you are even served.
Popular durian cultivars among durian plantation customers are red prawn, MSW and TSW. All durians are sourced from Johar Baru and brought in daily to ensure freshness which they believe is key to getting the best out of your durian.
Pre-orders are necessary to ensure that you are not disappointed when you get to the store. The more popular cultivars are not usually on the shelf for very long.

The promo winners are also announced publicly via Facebook and rewarded for their efforts with varying types of prizes. Sometimes the giveaway prize is an all-you-can-eat buffet experience at their store.
