Update 23 June 2012
I thought I can give this topic a miss this year. But with so many internet searches, I better shout a bit louder instead.
Durian season is not coming to Ubin this year.
Blame the weather. Not only durians are affected, even rambutans are scarce this time round. The rubber trees are also silent, when in season their seed pods would burst overhead, dispersing their seeds in the dry weather. Whatever durians that are left on the trees were plucked by monkeys even before they are ripe.
If you are a durian lover, probably the best place to find them are the neighborhood fruit stalls who are now selling them for $2.00 – $6.00 each. I would buy a few and chill them in plastic containers. They are a delicious treat in this hot weather.

Update 7 May 2012
Durian trees are very sensitive to the weather. The hot and dry months of April and May encourage massive blooming of its flowers, indicating plentiful harvest to be expected in July but not for season 2012. Besides bringing heavy rains, Nature’s fury with its violent Sumatra squalls menace every tree in Pulau Ubin. This time round the strongest are not spared, our favorite durian tree was toppled yesterday, crashing into a house. Not one was injured.
Update 9 April 2012
Durian season hasn’t arrived yet and so are its flowers which are yet to bloom. Please come back and check for updates in June.
