Q: What can I expect when I order the Jin Feng / Golden Phoenix Durian?
A: You can expect a high quality durian that is verified with the Malaysian Durian Authorities to be an actual Golden Phoenix Durian. In the de-husked packet that you will receive, your durians are hermetically air-sealed using a heat-sealer. Inside your packet will also be a water-absorbent condiment pack that we use to ensure that your durians arrive to you nice and good.
Q: Why are your durians sometime in-stock and sometimes not?
A: That is the case with durians, it’s that certain types will come into season and go out of season. The main durian season will have the most types of durians, so if you can patronise us during that period, that would be the best.
