When it comes to buying durians, sometimes the king of fruits is not the only thing getting ‘chopped’. From 8days.sg’s experience, scoring good durians requires a good relationship with the seller. When you have friendly ties with the stall uncle, you get better bargaining power, prices, and first dibs on the choicest durians (after all, uncle wants to keep his regulars coming back).

But with the Covid-19 outbreak still ongoing, it’s not the best time to throng your favourite durian stall now while the season is in full swing, or wash pongy hands in a makeshift basin with diluted soap. To keep up with the times, most durian sellers now offer delivery. All you have to do is place your order with the stall via a phone call, text messaging or, for the tech-savvier brands, its website, and the durians will be sent to your doorstep in conveniently sealed boxes.
