Do note that the S$1.99 promotion is only applicable to small and “general” durians of an undetermined cultivar.

If you prefer bigger durians, they will be sold at 3 for S$10, S$20, or S$50. Prices vary according to fruit size.

There’s an App That Helps You Identify What Durian It Is

With the durian season happening at full bloom, some of us durian newbies have no idea how to identify a durian.

Mao Shang Wang? Red Prawn? Why do all these thorny fruits have such fanciful names?

That’s where the “Musang King App” comes in.


The “Musang King App” operates via artificial intelligence to procure results within the span of mere seconds.

To use it, one simply has to take a photo of a durian. Them, let the A.I. identify the traits and they can receive an accurate depiction within seconds.

Thus far, the durian-dex is capable of recognising six durian varieties: the Musang King (D197), Sultan (D24), Golden Phoenix (D198), Golden Bun (D13), Red Flesh (D101), and Darling (D88).

The app’s recognition library will continue to be updated in due time.

App usage will be free for users, but interested durian sellers would have to pay an insignificant fee to be listed on the app (for exposure).
