J-Queen durian was founded by a 32-year-old Indonesian, Aka. Aka’s goal was to make a high-quality species of durian in order to display Indonesian’s love for the fruit. The J-Queen durian is said to be so tasty because the delicious golden meat manages to achieve a perfect balance of bitter and sweet. The flesh is also said to taste nutty and buttery while the fruit and seeds are in a rather round shape. Besides that, Aka also mentioned that 95% of the durian pulps are seedless. Coconuts have also reported that it is only harvested once every three years and there is only one J-Queen tree in existence!
