Durian

Appearance- Durian is a big fruit, which is spiky and green colour, native to Malaysia and Indonesia. In fact, it is considered as"King of the Fruit" throughout the South East Asia. It has a creamy surface, and the taste of its flesh takes eaters into ecstasies. It has an extremely nasty odor described as garlic like, similar to stinky feet, and like Limburger cheese. Some countries even veto the presence of durian in hotels and on public transportation due to its nasty smell.

In Detail

Taste-They are a neat agricultural product: they look good on supermarket shelf, they stay young and can be stored with relieve for quite some time, produce little odor, are of predictable, standardized quality. But they no longer have the original taste. Durians are like grapes and wine, or like cheese. They are a food for gourmet, for connoisseur. Classic durians, as they are found on Sumatra and Borneo, come as a wide variety with shades of taste like wine, or cheese. Though there is not a durian culture so far as there is a wine culture, there would be a good foundation for it. It's probably only a matter of Southeast Asia becoming sufficiently developed in economic terms to support food culture on a Western level.


Look- It looks like cheese, smells like cheese. The fruit can be from rectangle to round in structure, the pod color as in green to brown and its flesh pale-yellow to red, depending on species. The solid outer pod is covered with sharp, thorny thorn, while the edible custard-like flesh within emits the strong odor, which can be apparent either fragrant or overpowering and nasty. For a westerner, the incisive odor of durian can resemble cheeses like limburger. Its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnish with a gym hit. It can be smelled from yards away.
