The durian can afford to be choosy about who eats it – because it is in demand.
Some of the phrases used to describe it: “the king of fruits”, “the fruit of the gods”, “caviar of fruit”, “the most delicious food on earth” – give some hint about how it tastes.
The experience is not easy to describe for those who haven’t yet tried it.
The texture is like a sort of slighly fibrous custard.
The taste is unique. Custard, almonds, and perhaps a hint of garlic. Or perhaps banana, papaya, vanilla, and – rotting onions.
To those who appreciate it, eating durian is often an incredible, beautiful experience.
The variety provided by all the different durian strains adds to the overall effect.
A fallen, ripe durian announces its presence to the world by a pungent aroma that spreads for a considerable distance.
The smell is so distracting to humans that there are signs up througout South-East Asia prohibiting people from taking the fruit into hotel rooms or onto public transport.
The smell is quite effective at alerting animals in the vicinity to the presence of the durian.
There are several distinct durian aromas. The fresh durian has one smell, a ripe durian that has just cracked opens smells rather differently, and after that the stench of decomposition starts to dominate the durian’s aroma.
Durian pulp has its own smell – though this is perhaps not so penetrating and intense.
Both are rather thick, foetid, penetrating smells – that hint of moisture, decomposition, and – somehow – sex.
Durians are attractive to a great many creatures. However not all of them can get at the flesh. It can take considerable strength and intelligence to open a durian.
Being large is essential – and having hands – or a large crushing implement is helpful. The rind often resists damage even after being dropped from a substantial height.
Some large durians are difficult to eat all at once – due to their large size, substantial fat content and filling nature.
Many modern durians are even more inflated in size – by selective breeding.
Large size was probably favoured by the fruit – since the larger the fruit, the longer it is likely to travel before being discarded.
Fortunately, each durian comes equipped with its own “peduncle” – a stalk that is useful for carrying it around with – assuming you have hands, of course.
