I never tried durian.

Plain Ol’ Vic says he hates durian, a fruit from Indonesia that’s illegal in many places due to its awful stink. There are people who love it though, and say it doesn’t taste nearly as bad as it smells. I think the custardy consistency would put me off, but I would still like to try it sometime to see if it’s really that bad.

Has anyone tried durian, and if so, what did you think of it?

    The thing inside the durian on the left looks like fetus.

  2. I’ve never tried it(or heard of it), but now I’m curious:) I would probably take the tiniest bit and taste it. But if it smells bad?

    I love it. I like the smell too. It’s extremely popular with raw foodists which I was for six years. It is smooth like pudding and rich tasting.

  5. I have wanted to try this since I’ve heard of it some years ago. I’m a bit afraid to smell it, but I would definitely try it. The fact that it has a custard consistency makes me want to try it more. Avocado is like that and I love that, although it’s a bit bland, a little Herbamare, fixes it right up.

    I think it’s mainly sold frozen in the states though isn’t it…at as Just Plain ol’ Vic was saying, at Asian groceries.
