Update: In 2022 I found out that the site 8durian.com is no longer available.
It’s a Durian post! Moreover, it is a durian delivery post today. Can you imagine tasting fresh durian without even going out from home? But still fresh as it is scooped out from the fruit? This 8 Durian review is all about that!
8 Durian is the newest in the town which offers durian delivery across Singapore. And here is our 8 Durian review to spread this good news around!
Durian season in Singapore usually starts around June and you can find fresh durian till September. This is the best season to taste delicious and creamy durians.
In Singapore, you will find durians everywhere. There are different types of durians with different names and qualities. Singaporeans know how to pick the best tasting durians. And if you live in Singapore you must taste this King of the fruits, otherwise, you cannot be part of the Singapore. Well, this is not a rule. But this is what was told by my colleagues when I started working on my first job in Singapore back in 2009.And I became a Durian lover too.The same colleagues even introduced me to another Singapore must try,which is mooncakes.

8 Durian review and our experience
After reading the above features of 8 Durian delivery service, I am sure you are excited to know how we tasted the durians delivered. Yes, here is our 8 Durian review which include details from ordering to delivering to our tasting experience.
The ordering process
Ordering durians is really easy as the website is easy to navigate. The available durian varieties are with necessary details such as type, plantation, harvest and even the taste which is helpful for anyone who doesn’t know much about durians to place their order.
When I placed the order, I had to choose the delivery date and time. I received my durians on the due date and sharp within the time period I have mentioned.
Durians were packed perfectly in order to keep the freshness. If you don’t want to taste the durian right away, you can even keep it for few hours in the fridge as the packaging is properly sealed.
The tasting experience
In 8 Durians website you can find mainly 3 types of Durians including Premium Black Gold Durian , Mao Shan Wang and Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘AAA Grade’.I placed the order for Mao Shan Wang ‘A Grade’ and Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘AAA Grade’ durians as these are varieties that tastes creamy and sweet.
Our tasting experience was enjoyable.
Premium Mao Shan Wang AAA Grade :
With rich and creamy texture every bite of premium Mao Shan Wang durian could allow us to taste the freshness of durian. It was satisfying and our durian craving was arousing. Seeds are small therefore more flesh in each bite.
Here is my little reviewer who was waiting for durian tasting till I capture few photos. 🙂
Premium Mao Shan Wang ‘A Grade’
Although it is difficult to identify the exact differences between the tastes if these 2 durian types, Mao Shan Wang is still a rich creamy and slightly bitter durian. The colour is darker compared to the Premium Mao Shan Wang AAA Grade. Each bite was full of deliciousness which aroused the taste buds.
Overall we had excellent durian tasting experience.
