it's all right...if u can get past the 'dead animal for a week' smell
Well, I had to google it if that answers your question... sounds a little scary, but exciting too maybe.
Sometimes you can get it in West Coast Asian markets, fresh. Normally it is frozen for here in the US. You must get one with the 6 hearts to get good luck from eating it.
If you sit down and eat a whole bunch at single sitting, strange things happen inside you and most are not really all that pleasant. Wierd breathe, farting and burping will occur. Double that with frozen.
My father in law used to grow them and mom still has several plants around the farm. I think you need a side of prepped grapefruit/bua with salt and pepper to make the most of eating it.
I think it does have some aphrodisiac propertied but do to the above side effects it will not do you much good ;-)
Not my favorite. However I did have some in ice cream and that was actually not that bad. Hard to go for Durian when there is so many other tasty fruits that grow in the same areas.
Me, of course. I live in Indonesia and I often consume durian. It has a unique odors but I love the smell and perhaps some other will not like the smell. I think the taste is so good, It's one of the fruits I love to consume. The flesh is buttery almost like avocado but it's not bitter, it's in fact taste sweet and of course delicious!
I love Durian. My favorite! I grew up eating durian. My dad made sticky rice dessert, ice cream, and smoothie out of that fruit. Other people say it smell stink/horrible but I said it smell naturally beautiful. The stronger the smell, the sweeter and creamy the fruit taste.
I have tried Durian but I did not like it. The smell kept on going out of my mouth that I felt awful. It stinks a lot. Never eaten it again.
I actually wrote a hub about it right here on HubPages. I hated the smell when I was a kid and cried like a little girl whenever my mom ate it in front of me. But similiar to brussel sprouts, I began to enjoy it as an adult. I don't eat it often and only eat it when I know that I won't be having any company for at least a day. So what does it taste like? White chocolate and onions! It tastes like heaven but smells like hell
white chocolate and onions... so... that's not really a great combo. You could just buy white chocolate and then you've got something.
hmmm , I would not actually know how to describe the taste, But white chocolate and onions ? I have not tried one that tastes like that :0
DURIANS ARE THE BEST!!! Personally, I think it smells very good and it makes a good ice cream. Some people might not like it though. Durians are also very appetizing.

I noticed I no longer care for the taste of apples which have long been a staple of my diet. Today I took the time to smell my apple and it smells like a musky all suit of clothing. What is it with apples? Is there a coating that they are not informing of us?HELP! Inquiring...
