Mao Shan Wang Durian Prices Down To $12-$20/Kg Due To Hot Weather In Malaysia
Mao Shan Wang fans, listen up: prices are down to only $12 to $20 per kg, according to durian sellers whom The Straits Times spoke to on Monday (19 Mar).
Last month, prices for Mao Shan Wang (MSW) fluctuated from $20/kg to $28/kg.
Back in 2017, MSW durians would set you back more than $40/kg.
On average this means a potential 50% reduction in prices this month, due to a bumper harvest as a result of Malaysia’s prolonged hot weather season.
I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced that this is a good deal.
Time to indulge!
