I have never even seen one in person, but they like to throw them in the basket of TV cooking competitions here in the US to test the cook's ability to use such a rare ingredient.

Nothing beats a fresh-from-the-tree peach in July. But it's the end of December.

What sort of flavour does a Durian give?

I love tropical fruits like Mangoes so if it's similar I'd love to try one.

How about that.

Gives a new definition to muching a durrie though so perhaps that's why we can't get it in Australia. :lol:

I've had a durian drink. Tasted a bit like a mango,peach,orange combo with a dry after taste. Or maybe that's because it was made from a powdered mix

Isn't it illegal in Singapore to travel with it on public transit? I haven't tried it, but I've seen plenty of poor souls on youtube who regretted it. Still, I probably should try it.

There's a saying about it in my country (the Philippines):
"(Durian) tastes like heaven, smells like hell."
