Lindsay, of 'Year of the durian', is located in SE Asia.  She ships very high quality durian to the US which is then sent to customers.

Iíve been dying to order some of hers but canít stomach the cost yet.
Not that itís not worth it.

However, after at least a year since my last frozen durian purchase locally, I bought some arils on Saturday.
They have been phenomenal. Nearly the best frozen durian Iíve had.

First durian in which I tasted a fruitiness, like a berry flavor.

It could still be done, it's just that nobody is going to put in that much money for a fruit tree.
