Blackthorn/King Durian sellers

Does anyone know any reputable places that sell blackthorn or king durian at reasonable prices?

I’ve tried it in Malasia and I miss It ever since but it seems that durian prices are ridiculous in Canada

TIA

i can't help but i have a question...

I've had frozen durian in vacuum sealed packages as well as a whole durian frozen (asian groceries in my area carry both frozen kinds). left to thaw in the fridge and the durian is slimy mush. but when i see durian on youtube it looks pillowy soft and you can hold it in your hand, not some nasty goop that slips through your fingers. is it just because mine is frozen or am i thawing it wrong or something?

Maybe it’s been frozen for too long but the best kind is the monthong which is the medium between price and taste.

T&T has them for sale all the time and better deal than the one they sell in groceries regularly
