Pearl Durian Review from Johor Malaysia
Pearl Durian is not a new type of durian but it is not popular as Musang King, Red Prawn, XO or D24. Pearl Durian comes from Johor and they are more popular with Singaporeans as it is just across the border. We came across this durian type recently when we went to a durian ‘makan’ session at Sinnaco Durian Specialist in SS 19 (Durian Street). There, we found many new unheard of durian types (for us) and we tasted quite a few durians including the ‘Golden Phoenix’ durian.
Pearl Durian is rare in Kuala Lumpur as most of them are exported to Singapore (since they are willing to pay for it and the high Singapore dollar currency exchange). To find Pearl Durian in Klang Valley, you must find bigger durian stalls like Sinnaco Durian Specialist in SS 19. They are located at
The owner of Sinnaco Durian Specialist John called Pearl Durian an ugly duckling. The shape of the durian is ugly but the taste is top of its class.
When you open the Pearl Durian, you can easily spot the light colour durian flesh similar to ‘pearl’ colour.
The flesh is soft in texture and the seed is small. When you hold the durian flesh, you can tell how soft and creamy it is. The taste is of Pearl Durian is immense with sweet and bitter taste. It is very enjoyable and this gives a direct competition to Musang King in our opinion.
Since this is rare, the price of the Pearl Durian is more expensive than Musang King. Thus, this makes this a sought after durian like Black Thorn Durian.
There are Black Pearl and Pearl durian types and the difference is Pearl Durian is more bitter than Black Pearl Durian. Thus, if you think Black Pearl is awesome wait till you taste Pearl Durian!
