[Update on Apr. 22, 12:10pm: Durians are already sold out for the day.]
If you don't mind travelling for a good deal, it's time to head down to Bedok.
At an FairPrice outlet in the estate, whole durians are going for S$0.90, instead of the usual S$5.
The supermarket guarantees that each durian weighs between 600g and 800g, but did not reveal the cultivar on sale.
Instead, it is described as a "regular/ normal durian", with bittersweet flesh.
Size-wise, it can fit into an adult hand, but is larger than that.
Terms and conditions
The deal is only running on Apr. 22-24, 2022, and it's limited to the first 300 customers a day (sales start at 10am).
Each customer can only buy up to two durians per transaction.
And as mentioned above, you can only find the S$0.90 durians at one outlet: FairPrice @ 212 Bedok North Street 1.
But all these have not stopped a queue from forming in the morning:
If you don't mind having your durian out of a packet, there's some on sale too:
