The aroma of durian is quite strong and some may find the odor to be pungent upon the first smell; however, many will fall in love with the fruit after their first bite of the soft, sweet, ice cream like pulp. Thai durians taste like cream and have a wonderful full, soft mouth feel, making them a favorite of durian lovers worldwide.
Durian is a nutritious treasure. The pulp contains various vitamins and is high in dietary fiber. The Chinese say, “Eating one durian is as nutritious as eating three chickens.”
Durian is available from Rich Fruits all year.
