99 Old Trees @ Teo Hong Road - Launching Its first-ever ‘Durian Confidence Course’ With Free-flow Mao Shan Wang


Known for its quality durian (less than 12 hours after being harvested) delivered daily from Malaysia, 99 Old Trees at Teo Hong Road has launched its first-ever 'Durian Confidence Course' (DCC) from 19 June to 4 July 2023. Conceptualized and hosted by the durian veterans at 99 Old Trees, DCC hopes to inspire you to be the next batch of durian connoisseurs! And most importantly, it empowers you to choose your favourite durians confidently.



The Durian Confidence Course ($128 per ticket, $99 each for two tickets or more) is a yummilicious interactive 90-minute experience that seats up to eight persons. First, we began with a crash course to identify different durians from Malaysia. It teaches us the cheat code for choosing the best durians, the awareness of over-selling techniques to avoid falling prey to, and you will even get the chance to learn how to open a durian.

Free Flow Mao Shan Wang

Next, we went through the highly anticipated durian tasting session of six different cultivars, including free-flow Mao Shan Wang. You get to try varietals that are lesser in supply in our market, including Susu, Tekka, and S17. Drinks are included, with a choice of Coconut, Water, or Cooling Water C. It was quite an experience enjoying this stinky goodness in its alfresco area.


Included in this course, you get to bring home an exclusive goodie bag - a DCC manual, a 'CID' (Certified-in-Durian) T-Shirt (worth $29), A durian squishy (worth $5.90), as well as a Stinky Roll (worth $27), created by its sister brand Stinky. If you can't get enough of durian, drop in Stinky to try its whole range of desserts, such as the Stinky Bowl ($6.30) and traditional Teochew-style dessert Stinky Chendul ($5.90).


99 Old Trees will also set up an Anti-Durian Scam Hotline this season. The public can snap a picture of the durian they wish to purchase and WhatsApp it over to be verified by durian experts from 12pm to 9pm daily at 9822 2495.

DCC is priced at $128 per ticket, $99 each for two tickets or more. Pre-book your slots at
