Golden Phoenix (Jin Feng Durian)

The Jin Feng, also known as the Golden Phoenix durian, is a pale yellow-white durian. It has a smaller seed than most durians, but has a surprisingly strong, complex taste. The Golden Phoenix durian has a flesh texture that’s dry and thick, producing a mild alcohol flavour that soaks in your mouth.

With a small seed, the amount of flesh you get is quite worth it!

FAQ

Q: What can I expect when I order the Jin Feng / Golden Phoenix Durian?

A: You can expect a high quality durian that is verified with the Malaysian Durian Authorities to be an actual Golden Phoenix Durian. In the de-husked packet that you will receive, your durians are hermetically air-sealed using a heat-sealer. Inside your packet will also be a water-absorbent condiment pack that we use to ensure that your durians arrive to you nice and good.

Q: Why is your durian price so funny? Why you sell 400g when everyone is selling per kg?

A: Being a service that is specialised in delivery, it is difficult for us to send the husk over to you. Additionally, by hand-packing the durians, we are able to make sure that what arrives to you is not spoilt and in good condition. If we sent over the husk, you might not receive a perfect durian. It is also worth noting that 400g of Jin Feng comes from 1.3kg-1.5kg of durians, which means that our durians are actually quite affordable.

Q: Why are your durians sometime in-stock and sometimes not?

A: That is the case with durians, it’s that certain types will come into season and go out of season. The main durian season will have the most types of durians, so if you can patronise us during that period, that would be the best.
