Either you love it or you hate it! That is the reputation of the thorny “King of Fruit” called Durian. Although there are people who are put off by the strong smell and find the taste unpleasant, there are also a significant number of durian fans who are always looking forward to the peak durian season to indulge in the delight of the sticky, bittersweet and creamy flesh of the durian fruit.

In Singapore, durian season starts in May and hit its peak around June to August. The strong demand by consumers resulted in the typical retail prices to hit an average of S$26 per kilogram for premium grade durians. It is also during this season that we will see many companies and organizations taking advantage to work on their marketing campaigns based around the durian theme.
