Durian season timing for Sarawak and Sabah ...especially KK

I just returned from the most recent of my very many trips to SE Asia and am already eager to plan my next trip. I am an incredible durian fan and would like to go to Borneo on my next adventure. I'm a little confused by some of the information regarding the durian seasons there and am wondering...would early January be a good time to be in Kota Kinabalu in order to take advantage of the durian season? If not, when? Any other durian season suggestions for the entire region would be much appreciated. Thanks, very much!!

Durian season normally on June to August.

A smaller season on November to December

Thanks for your response. Since I wrote my initial post, I've done a lot of searching on the internet and I've determined that figuring out the optimum season for KK or any particular area is really fairly complicated. Also, as one might imagine, it can vary, somewhat, from year to year.

There is a non-commercial website that I found that is incredibly informative regarding 'everything durian'. It's call Year of the Durian and you can easily find it if you're interested. I hope I'm not breaking the rules by listing it. I tried to figure that out and I think it's OK. I hope so!

As you will have found, that site doesn't just list Malaysian durians and their seasons so you can use it for visiting Thailand etc.
