When comes to durian season, most of my friends and me will go hunt for it, especially those in Penang. KL durians are not bad but I still find Penang durians taste way much nicer with its texture and taste of it. So last weekend when I was back to Penang, I purposely told my dad I wanted to go again to the durian farm when I was a kid to go there eat it fresh then he help me arrange. This is the durian farm I eat yearly when I was a kid till now.
[Update: the farm had sold off since 2017]
Just to let you guys know that Penang Durians life is very short usually is only bout 6 – 8 weeks only and last weekend was already end of the season.
This is the no name durian farm and as the owner is ah Hai, I would name it ah Hai Durian farm that located bout 45 minutes drive from Georgetown head towards air port then travel the route head towards Balik Pulau. Once you pass Teluk Kumbar is just about 5 minutes drive from there which is half way from the before reaching the top right at the curve corner with this small wooden atap area.
as daily he have 2 fresh shipment of durians directly from the farm, and if you wish to go hunt for your own durians, you can just tell him and if he allows you to walk in then you can just go, which is just directly behind this shaded area. All of us are waiting for fresh durian deliveries that my dad had ordered
This are all the hungry people . .:D
Here we are, our durians had arrive and my dad seriously order alot~
I do not know what type is what type as ah Hai have his own special mix breed of durians and alot of types to choose from. D10, D11, D12, Red Prawn, Xo, and more.. .
This is the excitement that gets Nancy going. . .
and my best friend the 3 siau poh’s want to camwhore. . .
and request by them I have to take a geli pic to be feature in my own blog turns out to be like that. .this photo is user prob don know how to use my camera. . 😀
and of course Immai and her bf from KL and I stuff them with lots of durians till they surrender.
This durian season, was the best of it as I seriously eat alot compare to the past few years, and thru this farm, I always gain my satisfaction on durians after eating it .. *burrrp . .
If you ask me about exact location, I seriously do not know how to tell you as now there are new highway cutting thru this place, next year by following the highway, we have to make a certain U-turn to head to this place.
Total damage: cannot reveal cuz we have special price 😀
Next year I will be planing a 2 special durian trip . . .Stay tunned. . .
