From Farm To Table: Durian Blossom Salad

Durian flowers are edible. They do not taste and smell like durian fruits. They are crunchy with a tinge of fragrance and sweetness. During peak seasons of durian blossoms, this super dish will on our dining table almost every day. We love it because of its unique texture and exotic flavor.

Durian flowers are not plucked. The flowers blossom in the evening/at night, and fall from the tree naturally (except the pistil) in the next morning. Normally we collect the fresh flowers early in the morning to ensure the sweetness and the aroma of the flowers.
