8 Durian

I was recently invited by 8 Durian to try out their premium grade AAA Mao Shan Wang (aka 貓山王 / Musang King) durians in spite of my distaste for durians. Nevertheless, I invited some of my friends to bask in this lavishness.

From Pahang High Mountain Plantation

Arrived in heat sealed boxes and slightly chilled for quality guarantee assurance, 8 Durian offers authentic and premium Mao Shan Wang durians harvested from their private high mountain plantation in Pahang.

The durian costs $23.50/kg, and each box contains approximately 450g of durian flesh which comes from 1.8kg of durian husk.
The math: each box of durian costs $23.50/kg × 1.8kg/box = $42.30/box*.
*Rate may change from time to time.

8 Durian ensures that the wholesomeness of their durians is not compromised—they space out durian trees in their plantation to prevent overcrowding (as overcrowding causes trees to fight for sunlight and nutrients, resulting in dehydration) and only organic fertilizers are used (instead of potent fertilizers). The outcome of it is a fruit that is creamy and bitter with predominantly small seeds.

You may read more on why their durians are better.

Each box of durians tasted slightly differently:
  • Right: have a standard taste, slightly sweeter in flavor
  • Middle: have a good blend of creaminess and bittersweetness
  • Left: adequately rich in bittersweetness (I can totally tell how much my friends enjoyed them from their facial expressions)

Remedying the Durian Industry in Singapore

8 Durian is on a mission to rectify the durian industry in Singapore, with a vision to ensure that every Singaporean household has access to genuine and authentic Mao Shan Wang durians, especially when there are durian sellers in the market who get away with disguising ordinary Grade C durians as premium Mao Shan Wang durians.

8 Durian is one of the very few sellers in Singapore to be the providers of premium grade AAA Mao Shan Wang and Black Gold durians, while co-owning a plantation with advanced irrigation in the high and mountainous regions of Pahang.
