Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the "King of Fruits"... the Durian.
If you are not familiar with this controversial produce, the Durian is a popular fruit in the tropical South East Asia. In countries like Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, most locals have gotten used to the peculiar yet endearing odour of this fruit. However, most foreigners seem to find it an acquired taste at best and outright disgusting at worst.
Regardless of how people think of it, the thorny green exterior and the golden mushy meat inside never fails to make me salivate everytime I see / smell it. Since now is the Durian season, I was blessed with the pleasure of enjoying this delightful fruit again.
Here are a couple of pictures to share with you:
The thorny shell makes the Durian notoriously difficult to handle.
