DURIAN

DurianBotanical Name: Durio zibethinus
Description

Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance and an irresistible flavour; others find the aroma overpowering and revolting. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, it has been described variously as rotten onions, turpentine or worse. The persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in Southeast Asia. Durian trees have one or two flowering and fruiting periods per year. A typical durian tree can bear fruit after four or five years. The durian fruit can hang from any branch and matures roughly three months after pollination.
Durians are very tropical and we only recommend them from areas north of Mackay in QLD.
