D24 Tan Sri XO Durian
Our very own DurianBB Tan Sri XO has a story to tell. Behind that pale pulp triggers a memory from decades ago when the wholesome yeasty sweetness brings a Tan Sri pure joy.
This, a connoisseur’s favorite.
The story behind our very own Tan Sri XO –
It all started a few years ago when DurianBB was tasked to host a private durian party for a prominent Tan Sri in KL.
For this party, our team curated a range of top-notch durians for him and he was pleased with the selection. However, when it came to tasting our XO pulps, he suddenly went silent (while everyone else started to worry), then he blurted out with an elated smile,
“This is what I have been looking for! I have not tasted THIS for many years, and after searching for so long, I’ve finally found it today!”
What Tan Sri tasted that day was XO pulps bore by old durian trees aged over 40 years, grown on a hilly section in our very own farm. The texture is silky and velvety, the flavour is rich with complexity, bittersweet, and leaves a lingering aroma.
The fact is, many old-school durian connoisseurs have always loved this XO.
From then on, all the fruits bore from our aged durian trees have been named “Tan Sri XO”.
D24 Tan Sri XO Durian FAQ
What is Tan Sri XO?
Tan Sri XO durian is prized for its rich, creamy flesh that’s sweet in flavour with an alcohol aftertaste. The Tan Sri XO is a must-try for those who love their durians to be strong and bitter.
Is Tan Sri XO same as D24?
The Tan Sri XO belongs to the D24 family, too. But its quality is even more premium than most conventional D24 durians because these trees are cultivated on farms high in altitude in Pahang, with well-drained soil; This produces fruit with stronger aromatic qualities that you won’t find anywhere else!
Is Tan Sri XO bitter?
As its name implies, you can taste a hint of alcohol in an XO durian because of the extended fermentation of the flesh inside the husk. The resulting flesh is bittersweet with an appealing sweetness at every bite!
When is the XO durian season?
The XO durian season typically occurs between July and September, although there is a “minor season” between the months of December and February.
The coveted Tan Sri XO durian is available year-round at DurianBB. Although durian supplies are limited, DurianBB is committed to offering the finest XO durians to its customer throughout the year. So don’t wait – order your Tan Sri XO durians today!
Is XO Durian halal?
The name “XO” is derived from the fact that it tastes similar to alcohol, but be assured that there is no alcohol content in the fruit. XO durian has a unique, distinct alcoholic taste similar to cognac or brandy due to extended flesh fermentation inside the husk. Once you’ve taken a bite, you’ll understand why durian sellers and lovers have given it the name XO.
