Mangoes are my number one favorite. They're just starting to come in season now in Peru and by mid-season they'll be super sweet with creamy orange flesh. I love all the berries, which we can't get here, especially blueberries. And bing cherries are another favorite. In December, boxes of them come in from Chile. They're the largest, sweetest, juiciest cherries I've ever eaten. I can hardly wait!
Have you seen, smelt or tasted Durian? It is my favourite!
In one of the Chinese proverb, it says that Durian is the king of all fruit and Mangosteen is the queen. Don't exactly know why.
Durian is a love-it-or-hate-it story. It comes in a thorny green hard shell that needs to be chopped open for a slit, which can then be pry open by force. Its meat is yellow, sticky, soft texture with super strong smell!
Doubt many people like it, but my husband and my family is a big fan of Durian!
I like durian a lot too! A lot of people say they smell bad but to me they don't seem to smell at all. Maybe it's because I don't have a keen sense of smell or something...anyways durian is so creamy and delicious!
