#30 Durian fruit

This Puyat variety of the Durian has a creamy taste and is less pungent than the original.

    Seeing that turns my stomach. I tried a bite of durian in Indonesia once. One bite once. Some hotels there forbid bringing them inside because they reek so badly. We passed it around and the consensus was that it tasted something like we imagined rotting excrement mixed with diesel might to taste. I gave it a local and he happily accepted it and chowed downed.

    1. That Durian fruit you are referring to must be a native variety; I myself stay away from native Durian because of the pungent smell. Fortunately here in the Southern Philippines, some farms develop hybrid varieties that have subtle scent and creamy texture.
