Characteristics: An old-school durian that is often known affectionately as the “Musang Queen”, this durian is well-loved among durian aficionados. The low yield that is associated with this durian gives way to arils that are deep yellow and packed with intense flavour. One telling sign that you are getting a Tekka is the deep orange “longkang” that runs through the middle of the durian once opened.
Taste Profile: Bittersweet but extremely complex with strong floral notes and a distinct “Kampung” flavour. For the sweeter ones, a light burnt caramel taste is present sometimes.
