LIMITED STOCK AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY THURSDAY 22 APRIL 2021. A special air-flown import to Sydney by GM2i from Thailand within 48 hours of harvest, these FRESH (never frozen) Puangmanee are a sweet delight.
The Puangmanee (also called Telur Buaya in Malaysia) is known as a small durian usually weighing between 1.3-1.8kg as a fresh whole fruit. On the inside, its warm yellow-orange sticky velvety flesh usually has a rich sweetness, and pleasant flavour.
“It’s hard not to like a durian that tastes somewhere between toffee and the almond version (and obviously better version) of the Snickers candy bar." ~ describes Lindsay Gasik, Year of the Durian.
The name "Puangmanee" comes from a lovely Thai lady by the name Manee, whose husband had won durian competitions back in the 1980s.
In Thailand, the pre-fix “Puang” describes the size and the cluster style growth of durian varieties. “Puang” actually means a cluster of flowers. Whilst Manee's name actually means jewels. Describing hem together conjures up a lovely meaning of a "cluster of jewels."
Air-flown direct from Thailand, these fresh chilled (never frozen) durian segments are packed to order and delivered to Australia within 2-3 days.
