We know it’s tough to find the time to get away to Durian Land right now. There’s the kids, the job, the Covid-19, the lockdowns…
But we can send a little bite of Borneo to you!
This is A Taste of Limbang, a sampler pack with 3 incredible wild Durian Hybrids straight from the hearts of the Iban and Bisaya ladies in this unusual sliver of Malaysian Borneo. That’s right — lady durian growers! 🦸🏻
This Sampler includes three different colored *hybrids* (D. zibethinus x D. graveolens)
- Suluk Kuning: The milder starter, with a smooth nuttiness and just a hint of an alcoholic perfume.
- Suluk King: The famed flame-colored durian with a berry-sweet, fruity, nutty density.
- Otak Udang Merah: Beautiful and sophisticated, the deep red to salmon pink flesh has sophisticated notes of cherry wine blended with heavy cream.
This is a Mail Order Durian package — you can buy durian online and it ships anywhere in the USA & Canada.
These durians are tree-dropped and sourced from all of the ladies pictured below and on the box: Madam Ting, Paula, Norah, Jenny and Auntie Anna.
There are Tasting Directions and an order to eat them, as well as information about Limbang, how to visit yourself someday, and why it was so darn difficult to get these durians to you.
So close your eyes, take a bite, and imagine yourself whisked out of your living room, kitchen, bedroom (no judgment) or patio off to a hot, steamy morning under a deep blue sky, a river full of crocodiles, and Norah with her machete carefully opening these durians for your breakfast.
**Disclaimer: This is Not Musang King**
These durians DO NOT taste like Musang King, so don’t expect semi-sweet and boring.
These durians are zingy, alcoholic, wild, and very, very thick and creamy. Taking a bite is almost like licking a spoonful of peanut butter. Be ready.
These durians are hybrids of the wild D. graveolens (which gives them their intense coloration and in-your-face perfume) and D. zibethinus, which gives them their thick flesh and richer, smoother texture.
These durians were blast frozen to -40C. This type of freezing process does not rupture the cell walls and better preserves the durian meat’s natural shape and texture when you thaw it to eat.
They were flown to America under dry ice, and repackaged here into mail order boxes that can last up to 3 days in transit.
This is as Borneo-to-your-table-in-America as we can do. It’s definitely a team effort.
*Meet the Durian Farmers*
On the Blog:
*No Styrofoam Packaging*
To get these durians to you still cold, we need insulated containers. We’ve decided to use biodegradable, compostable insulation foam made out of corn. Yes, it’s a little more expensive, which is reflected in the price.
*Lower Shipping Rate*
A lot of companies that let you buy durian online or other fruits n veg add a big fee for the shipping rate to make the product itself look cheaper.
We didn’t do that, so the shipping rate is actually a discounted UPS rate and is $50 or less per box no matter where you are in USA or Canada.
At this time we only have shipping set up to Durian Munchers in the US and Canada. We have shipped to Australia, Belgium and the UK before.
If you would like to know the shipping rate to your country, just send me a message to [email protected]
