Durian grows in tropical regions around the world, particularly in the Southeast Asian countries of Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
The most poppular variety for export is Monthong, Chanee, Kradum, Kanyao, Volcano and a few other.
Durian can be export as Whole Fresh Durian, size from 2-6kgs with at least 3 lobes to maximum 6 lobes.

The ripeness level is depending on transit time using for transport to destination plus shelf life for sell at destination.
Durian can also be export as Peeled Fresh Durian in retail package. This is more convenient than Whole Fresh Durian
which is sophisticated to whom that have less knowledge of how to notice the ripeness level (sotfness of the Durian meat).
Durian can be consumed cooked or raw. It provides a distinctive taste to any dish and is often used in Asian cuisine to flavor ice cream, cakes, and other baked goods.
Durian's outer shell must be removed before eating. Place durian stem side down on a sturdy counter. Then, slice into the spiny skin about 3–4 inches deep. Use your hands to pull the skin apart and reveal the fruit. Durian is divided into pods. Each has a pit or a stone that should be removed prior to eating.
Durian can be produced nearly all year round
