One man's poison, another man's meat (or profit? ;-)). It's the smell, baby, the smell!!! Best to take a glass of salt water after Durian as it is quite 'heaty'! Do not drink wine with Durians. It will kill.
This is one of the most delicious fruits of all time. Harumanis in Indonesia is my favorite. If you haven't tried that, you haven't tried real mango! It's a love fruit, by the way, if you know how to play with it ;-)
Its been known as snake fruit by foreigners due to its exterior. However, this is quite a distinctive fruit which I've only found in Indonesia & Malaysia. They have been exported to some other Asian countries like Singapore, Hong Kong & China. Try it if you come across it. Salak Bali & Salak Pondoh (sometimes, Pondok) are best.
This one has a nice aroma (not the same as Durian but more acceptable to the foreigners) & best if eaten with grass jelly & coconut juice. It's tasty on its own too and the seeds can be cooked and eaten as well. Very versatile.
