What is frozen durian?

Frozen durian is not only a popular choice for consumers but also an effective solution to help farmers preserve large quantities of durian after harvest. There are two types of frozen durian:

  • The first type of durian is frozen in pieces: After harvesting, the durian is fully utilized by peeling, separating seeds and cleaning. Next, the durian is put into a cutting machine to be divided into small bite-sized pieces. These durian pieces are then transferred into a freezer chamber, where they will undergo a freezing process to create a frozen durian product. This ensures the quality of deep cold and maintains product freshness even after defrosting.

Simple instructions on how to freeze durian at home

Step 1: Peel and prepare durian

Start by peeling the durian and using a knife or scissors to cut it into small pieces. If the durian is still a bit sour, wait until it is completely ripe before freezing. At the same time, prepare a vacuum bag or food wrap.

Step 2: Pack durian

If you use a vacuum bag, place each durian piece in the bag and use a vacuum sealer to seal it. In case you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, use plastic wrap and place each durian piece in a plastic box, then close the lid tightly. Note that each bag or box should only contain 1-3 durian pieces, depending on their size.
