DURIAN ang moh says DO RYAN

Durian of Balik Pulau

In Penang, Malaysia, the best place to get good durian is in the town at Balik Pulau, on the southwest of Penang Island. Balik Pulau is a 30 minute drive over the main range and has a lot of durian orchard.

THe following is the selectionof branded durian at 2004 and 2006 during AsiaExplorers Durian Feast

D 11

"Number eleven"is a very popular durian in 70's. Yes the twist era. It has creamy yellow flesh with a pleasant taste and a subtle smell

D 604
The D 604 was first cultivated by The Late Mr. Teh Hew Hong of Sungai Pinang, Balik Pulau. The flesh is quite sweet, and has some "body" to it as the seed is small

D 600

This durian originates in Sungai Pinang, Balik Pulau. The flesh has a bittersweet taste to it, with touch of sourness. The wan that I documented is a bit hard.

D 700

The flesh is darker than D 600, like chrome yellow. Also slightly hard. Crispy, but the smell not very strong

Ang Sim

Ang Sim is a durian with flesh which is quite soft and very sweet, and dark yellow in color. It also has a nice aroma

Khun Poh

This durian takes the name of The Late Mr. Lau Khun Poh, who isfirst budded it. Khun Poh has beautiful orangy flesh with a slightly bitter-sweet taste and a heavy aroma

Hor Lor aka Water Gourd Durian

The flesh of Hor Lor is very soft, dry and quite bitter. It has a sharp smell to it. Hor Lor was first cultivated at Brown Estate of Sungai Ara. It got its name its appearance resembling a "Hor Lor" pumpkin. If the durian hits the ground hard when it falls, the flesh tends to be bitter thereafter

Ang Heh aka Red Prawn

Ang Heh originates from Pondok Upeh, Balik Pulau, and has a round-shaped husk. The orange reddish flesh is highly aromatic, very soft with a bitter-sweet taste.

Xiao Hung ( Lil’ Red Durian)

Xiao Hung, whose name means "Little Red One," originates in Sungai Pinang, Balik Pulau. The flesh has a bittersweet taste to it, with a touch of sourness. The one that I tasted for this write-up is a bit hard. There are only one or two seeds per section, but the flesh is thick

Yah Kang (Centipede Durian)

Yah Kang is one of my favorite durians. Although its flesh is whitish, the taste is superb, milky, like very sweet, melting chocolate. The name "yah kang" means centipede, and accounts for the number of centipedes found at the foot of the tree, hence giving it the rather unusual name

Bak Eu (Pork Fat Durian)

Bak Eu has a slightly acidic aroma. The flesh is whitish while the taste is quite bitter but nice.

The following are some of the durians I tried the first time at Peng Siew Durian Estate in Titi Serong, Balik Pulau, on the AsiaExplorers Durian Feast, 17 June, 2006 .

D 17

D 17 is dark cream flesh. The taste is slightly dry but sweet. It is a tasty durian


This durian is gets its unusual name because it looks like two durians joined together, one big and one small. When split open, you almost thought the two halves belong to two different durians. Coupling has whitish flesh which is slightly dry but tastes good.

Ooi Kyau (Tumeric Durian)

The name Ooi Kyau (tumeric) describes the colour of the bright yellow flesh of this durian. It is very sweet and tasty.

Chaer Phoy (Green Skin Durian)

Chaer Phoy is shaped like a small canteloupe. The skin is bright green, giving it the name which means "green skin". Chaer Phoy has creamy white flesh which is a bit dry, not too sweet but tasty.

Ang Jin (Red Yoke Durian)

As the name suggests, Ang Jin Durian has deep orange flesh. It is very sweet and tasty.

Lin Fong Jiau

This durian is named after Lin Fong Jiau, aka Mrs Jackie Chan. I wonder whether it is indicative of the relationship of the celebrity couple, for Lin Fong Jiau is a bittersweet.

chun anot? chun leh..... drooling or not ha.. lau nuah leh.... kambing to Penang faster la..... if too long drive go by plane lor.. airasia kan murah no more than RM100
