Origin Of Durian XO
Durian XO is grown at high elevation with well drained soiled. Similar to D24, XO durians also came from Johor, Genting and Cameron Highlands, which are mostly places that are high above the ground.
In terms of appearance, XO durians also look similar to D24, which was the reason why many got confused about the two durians. Many durian fans agree that XO durians are an ‘upgraded’ version of D24. Compared to D24, XO durians are rarely has that sweet taste which is present in D24 durians.
This bitter durian is named after an alcoholic drink as its flesh has a fermented flavour that makes it almost alcoholic, thus deriving at its current name.
