Plant Type

The durian is called “Red Prawn,” because of the slightly pinkish color and curving shape of the flesh inside the shell, which reminded the sea food loving people of Penang of the large shrimp red prawn. It's no coincidence that the red prawns of the sea are just as an expensive delicacy as the Red Prawn of the trees. Red Prawn durians are known for their creamy, sticky, smooth, and fibreless flesh, encasing small to medium-sized seeds. The flesh has a sweet, fruity, and subtly bitter, fermented taste with red wine, berry, and chocolate-like nuances.
