Mao Shan Wang is usually like a rugby ball. It’s that same pyramidal thorn as the mao shan wang but it’s usually round such as a bowling ball.
A few dishonest sellers of durian pass off the Thai durians as the early Mao Shan Wang if the Musang King is off-season, during the early season and the late season when there’s pent up demand yet low MSW supply. Unfortunately, it is a very popular scam that happens every day.
The Mao Shan Wang has got a different 5 arm “starfish” with a nearly long slender arm that goes on to run up from a bottom to those sides of durian.
Look for features
When you are looking for the Mao Shan Wang, you need to look for all 5 features altogether in just a single durian. The other durians can have 1 or 2 of these attributes but not all 5 together.
Also, there’re bad maoshanwang and good Mao Shan Wang. So, you have got to watch out for the good ones.
Customers can still get the bad Mao Shan Wang when they go on to run into false durian sellers who:
- Cheating on the weight
- Mao Shan wang- Sell stale
- Switch & Bait
- Use bold strong-arm tactics in order to intimidate the customers into acquiring bad durians.
Use bold strong-arm tactics in order to intimidate the customers into acquiring bad durians.
When you know an honest durian seller (which the majority of them are), go back straight to one for your very durians.
