馬來西亞榴槤 (Malaysia Durian)

說起馬來西亞榴槤,相信很多人也第一時間說貓山皇,其次是D24;其實在馬來西亞境內卻有很多品種,作者不在這裏逐一說,實在太多了,而每年也有新品種面世的。

When we are talking about malaysia durian, many people will say Mushang King or D24, however, there’re many different types of durian in Malaysia, and it will have new type of durian every year, so I don’t want to talk each individually here.

 

馬來西亞榴槤與泰國榴槤很不同,馬來西亞榴櫣由於是樹上成熟後,自動跌下,農夫才拾起來,所以味道濃厚,偏甜而帶酒香。而泰國榴櫣卻是在未熟之前,人手在樹上採摘下來後,放了好一段時間待成熟後才推出市面,因此味道偏淡,沒有太多香味吧。

What’s the different between Malaysia durian and Thailand one?  Practically, Malaysia one is fall down on the floor naturally when it’s matured, then farmers pick it up on the floor, so Malaysia durian is taste more fragrance, richer and sweetie with wine notes.  On the other hand, Thailand one is picked by hand on the tree when it’s still young and seated in somewhere to let it mature, then only sell in the market, so the taste is light with less fragrance.

 

在香港,要買到馬來西亞榴槤也有幾種途經,從果欄、榴槤專門店、大型超市或近年很流行的榴槤自助餐,但任何一個途經,在香港吃到的,是貴大約7-10倍的價錢。然而,如果讀者有時間,作者建議參加一些有提供住宿套餐的果園,除了任食不同品種的榴槤外,也有其他水果供應,價錢亦相宜。

There are few ways you ca find Malaysia durian in Hong Kong, from wholesale market, durian shop, large supermarket or even durian buffet, although it’s many ways to get it, but the price is around 7-10 times of Malaysia.  Therefore, I would like to suggest you to find some staying package within the garden that provided by farmers, this kind of packages not only provide durian buffet, but other fruits as well and the price are reasonable.

 

然而在馬來西亞當做的時候卻是通街也可以買到,好像今年,剛剛這個月才開始大做,所以這個月買榴槤是很便宜的,今年大約馬幣6x元/kg,而果肉也特別香甜。

When the right season, you can find all types of durian selling on the street.  This year, just starting durian season this month, and the price is around RM6x/kg, and it’s sweetie and fragrance.

 

要識別貓山皇,就是要看看其尾部,一定有星形在低部,外形為球形,每個大約1-2kg,  果肉是黃金色為好。

To recognize the real Mushang King durian, you can see the big star sign at the bottom, it’s round shape and around 1-2kg each, and the fruits are brown gold colour.

 

當然,吃過榴槤後,手上還留下很多味道,當地人教授一招,用榴櫣殼洗手 – 把殻放在水喉下,而手就放在殻的下面沖洗,就可以洗去味道;另外,吃榴槤後會燥熱,所以吃後最後喝杯鹽水或喝用榴槤殼煲過的水,就可以解燥熱。

After tasted durian, it will be so smelly on the hand, you can use the fruit shell, run under the tape water and wash your hand underneath the shell, the smell will gone.  On the other hand, after tasted durian, it may be too hot on our body, so you can either drink so salted water or drink some water which boiled using its shells, also can get rid of hot.
