The Flooding of Durian

Fresh durians coming from the farm are unloaded in the city proper for consumption.  

The peak season for durian is evident in Davao City these days. No matter where you laid your eyes on the streets of Davao, I’m sure you’ll see a durian fruit. The fruit’s presence is clearly everywhere since the strong repulsive smell is inescapable. I’ve heard that this year, the harvest is abundant and there are oversupply of durian in Davao City. Excess durians will be sent to Cebu and Manila where many people are also indulging (or curious?) of this famous fruit dubbed as the “king of fruits“.

Since there are surplus durians in Davao City, the prices of these fruits are going steep down to as low as P15 a kilo in Calinan (some think that it could get lower than that) and P20 to P30 in the city proper. Many tourists are now taking advantage of these prices since durians could get really expensive when the season is over.

How To Eat Durian

Step 1 : Chop the spiky durian open
