[UPDATE, Aug 1]

Get ready for more Mao Shan Wang — the harvest is going to be bigger and better than before.

Just when we thought that durian season is coming to an end, we caught wind of a piece of good news: durian season is coming back this National Day weekend.

In an interview with CNA Lifestyle, Kelvin Tan of 99 Old Trees, revealed that the price of the bumper crop is lower during the peak of the harvest.

Tan added: "It's the second wave of durian season."

A quick check on 99 Old Trees' Facebook page showed the price of Mao Shan Wang Grade A for July 30 to be at $19 per kilogram (kg). 

Because we're as crazy about Mao Shan Wang as the next person, we asked 99 Old Trees just how cheap the popular cultivar will be.

In an exchange on Facebook message, they replied: "The price of Mao Shan Wang Grade A will range between $16 to $18 per kg, and this season is expected to last until the end of this month."

Here's another thing to look forward to for the long weekend, besides the National Day Parade fireworks.
