Annnd, we’re finally down to the last one on the list! If you loveeee durian (like me), but couldn’t afford musang king or red prawn then do go for the underdogs instead. Don’t ever underestimate them though because they have their fair share of tastiness. Opt for 369, though lesser known amongst other types of durians, the flesh of the durian is tender and its sweetness is heavenly to boot.
