Durian is probably the one thing I know I'll never come around to even being able to tolerate. It really isn't anything like a fruit at all in terms of taste. It tastes like fermented quiche.

Are you going to bid on the red? Crazy expensive, but crazy hard to get too by the same token.

The king of fruit deserves its crown as the finest of them all. Demand is through the roof and supply is limited. There are a few species higher n the desirability stakes.Zibethinus will always rule the roost but there are about 5 other species in Borneo and one in Sumatra that are pretty special.It is not thst expensive for a hard core fruit enthusiast.

Not everyone can develop a 'cultured' palate aus99a and the first taste of avos doesn't always meet with approval.It is not for every one just like seafood,wine,pate',some cheeses and deli treats.

Leaves me out then, very uncultured. Haven't even heard of this fruit before this thread. But if I see one I'll think about it.

Aus you'll get one whiff of durian and won't go anywhere near it--I promise. It is banned from being eaten in public in thailand it smells that bad.

I'm happy to be considered gastronomically barbarous if it keeps Durian as far away from me as possible :D

Come on Mike, don't even try to tell me Durian is your favorite fruit-you're blaspheming the holy name of purple mangosteen! I'll trade a king for a queen anyday.

Durian is way ahead of mangosteen for me and more than a fruit really.It is like it has transcended to a higher plain of culinary experience.Sternus those $70 pieces of fruit at Rusty's don't get snapped up for no reason.I suggest if you have the opportunity to throw off the shackles again and again and chow down on big hunks until the epiphany happens. You'll get it then.

I would buy it in less than a heartbeat if I could grow it here . There is an Asian store nearby that sell frozen prepared Durian in blister packs. I forget how exquisite Durian tastes every time I tuck in.
I originally had to force it down my throat, only because of it's reputation. I am now a Durian lover for life.
Is there any fresh Durian in Bali? What can I expect to see there in a weeks time?

John it will be there but maybe not much at the moment.If you should find yourself in the highlands inspecting any of the dozen or so salaks keep an eye out for 2 types that may grow at your place due to cold tolerance.They are also the best Salacca zalacca subs. amboina.One is called gula pasir and the other is boni with red flesh.They are permitted entry into Australia.

My place currently has the dulcet aroma of zibethinus wafting around as it has for 3 months now.

What does it taste like trikus? Chocolate notes or what's special about this one?

I love durians, my tree has flowers ready to open but it's only one tree so not sure if i'll get fruit.

Sternus durian is not prohibited in Thailand's public spaces...only in skytrains, hotels. But in supermarkets, streetmarkets and so you can't miss it....and when it's peeled it smells much less strong but still you'll easy know if there's durian in the house....it's best to have it in wellvented places. It's like icecream when chilled.
