Best Durian Sellers in Singapore for Quality Durian Delivery Services
As the annual durian season approaches, you're probably already dreaming of getting much needed your durian fix.
it's no surprise then that the very topic of best durians is one, every one has a different opinion about. Some Singaporeans even have opiniated views about bitter versus sweet types, while others can't stand the very sight (or smell) of this thorny delight.
Next, some wouldn't mind the local kumpong versions that are a much more affordable option while others will only feast on the premium favourites Mao Shan Wang, D24, Golden Phoenix durians that are rich and loaded with flavour.
With so many different options, it's no wonder ieatishootipost had to write an entire durian guide for foodies to get acquainted with the king of fruits.

Ah Seng durian is probably one of the most seasoned players in the durian industry, with its roots going back to as far as the 1980s. You can be assured that the durians you get would be of tip top quality as Ah Seng himself goes down to the durian plantations to do quality checks. As with the other big players, Ah Seng Durian also provides for event catering, and have done so for companies like SingTel and Standard Chartered.
Currently, Ah Seng does not provide delivery services but you can make an order online before picking your durians up at their two locations.
Durian delivery positions themselves as the only seller in Singapore who offers free replacement, in the event that you receive durians that have gone bad. This definitely puts your mind at ease as you would be unable to taste the durians before purchasing them. If you are having a small durian party at home and are afraid of not being able to hit the minimum spend for delivery, then durian delivery is perfect for you! If your total order falls below $100, delivery charges start for $9.70 per location.
Durian delivery has also been featured on countless blogs and publishers like Seth Lui and Vulcan, so you can be assured its quality!
You would get an inkling of how popular Durian Lobang King is because they are currently fully booked till May. Other than durians, they also sell several durian flavoured snacks like mochis and crepes. They are also good for event catering as they offer a $40 discount for every $800 worth of purchase made. Do note that there would be a minimum order of $600 for bulk purchases.
The first thing that comes to mind when you think about frozen durians would be that there are stale, and have lost their freshness. However, Durian Papi manages to keep the freshness of their durians despite freezing them! Their durians are hand-picked by Pahang’s durian farmers who are trained to select only the best of durians. Durian Papi also offers same day delivery if orders are made before 6pm and local purchases qualify for free express delivery too.
What is great about Durian Papi is that their frozen durians have a shelf life of up to one year, so you can always buy in bulk and save the rest for your midnight hunger pangs.
Kungfu durian not only does delivery, but they also have a physical store you can go to enjoy your durians at! What’s great about them is their reward system where you earn $0.05 rebate for every dollar you spend, perfect for recurring customers. Kungfu Durian is also a veteran in catering for corporate events, having done so for SCDF, Baker’s Brew, and even smaller scale family events. These are however subjected to a minimum order and require one week’s notice for logistical purposes.
