Don't let your fear slow you down. Good durian is quite sweet. Bad durian is awful. I liked it the first time.
I have heard so much about it. I hope to try it some day.
Durian is an acquired taste. It does smell like a cross between rotten onions and a London sewer.
You need to try it a least five times. After the fifth time you are "hooked" and it is the best fruit that you have ever tasted!.. It grows mainly in Southeast Asia and is also found in Thailand and the Philippines. We have been invited out to Sabbath dinner tomorrow at the home of friends we knew when we lived in Singapore. They have requested that WE bring Durian for dessert!!!!
the Philippines yes they have sme unusual tasting fruits.. I do not think Itasted this durian i hear alot about either their was this fruit that tasted funny it was big and round n tasted sort of like marshmellows hah i Not sure what it was alled though.. I had tasted it about 2 years later n this time the taste was not as bad kinda sweet .. Jack fruit ?/ .. ha I do not remember its name .
Uncle Murray: If you have any Oriental markets near you they generally have flash-frozen Durian.
I wold suggest that you start out purchasing a small container of Durian in which the seeds have been separated and you can buy three or four for six to eight dollars. The whole Durian unopened costs here in Orlando $1.99 lb. which has gone down from $2.69... must be a good year. Depending on size it would cost anywhere from $10-20. The last one I got was not the best I have bought....Nuff sed

Australian macadamia is a nut quite different to any nut one can taste....though chickpeas are nice too...in veggie dishes....
Like MFG I love tomatoes too, home grown of course...
i have a thing for black or red grapes, cherries, blue berries and blackberries. I love mango and watermelon too, but I think grapes are at the top of my list.
