The “king of fruits” is known for its extreme smell. The fruit, which is easily recognized because of its dangerous-looking prickly skin, can grow to weigh up to 8kg (17lbs). The taste of a durian can be compared to custard, garlic, onion and blue cheese… combined. It’s a taste you might need to get used to before you are able to enjoy it fully.
On the next page you’ll find a fruit called dragonfruit.
