Need directions to Durian Plantation

Having Durian craving now. But had never been to a durian plantation before. Anyone has GPS coordinate to some durian farm around Johore or maleka area?

Thanks for the thread. It provides good info. However the places recommended are quite far from Singapore.. May hunt one down in Kulai. Also saw one on the way to kukup.

With the season fast approaching, don a crash helmet if you plan to wander thru the plantations esp. where no nettings are in place... :rolleyes:

I used to wait until after 4-5 am at dawn and esp. after it had poured heavily... and go make my scoops on all fallen durians in our plantation back then... when I was only a toddler... yes, durian & mangosteen eating embedded in my system since \:D/

Wah you luck guy.. Got plantation somemore. It's my dream to retire with a garden with lots fruit trees.

They say durian trees have 'eyes'. they can see and don't drop on peoples head. This what those uncle said when my parents brought me to wait for durian to drop in those forest.

Not a big plantation lah... modest size garden for today's standards... land is all sold and gone back then before leaving Spore for good.... :mrgreen:

Go to Thailand and I can help you secure big acreage and lots of room to plant yr exotic fruit trees... :thumbsup:
