@Freelee....well this info about Bali durian season is according to Anne who has spent time there. I'll let you all know what it's like when I get there!

Durian trees have sometimes 2 fruiting seasons, the major one and the minor one. Time for them depends not just on the latitude, but also altitude, local climate, temperature, soil etc. It is also not unusual to see both fruiting and flowering at once, meaning there will also be some fruit out of the season.
Close to equator, the season is usually december-february (Bali) and june-august. But in the regions with dry and wet periods, the trees may produce only during the rainy period.

Great picture, Simon :o)

Durian was in full force in Bali last year while I was there from November - January.

Wow Ryno really? I'm dying to get to Bali. This year Philippines is a strong possibility.
Marianna may be worth starting a discussion for that one. I haven't worked over there so not sure. I fund it through my mentoring, we really live pretty cheaply. No 5 star hotels :D

I heard that Bali's peak durian season is December!

How do you all fund your stays? What kind of work is available in Thailand, specifically Koh Samui? Do you need work visas etc?
I am seriously considering a few months over there...

Hey Karmyn,

Here are a few of the peak season periods I know of (anyone please correct me if I'm wrong):

- Most of Thailand peaks in April - June
- Bali is February - March
- Mainland Malaysia (and Penang) is mid-June
- Singapore should also be mid-June (most of the durian comes from Malaysia)
- Mindinao, Philippines is August-November
- I think Hawaii is September

A few notable absentees are Borneo, Sri Lanka and Sumatra

I need to know when durian season PEAKS in each country in SE Asia that grows it.

Thank you! :)
