Durian, king of fruits 

Have you come across durian? Have you smelled or tasted it?

This is the fruit (below)- quite distinctive with spiky thorns around the outer skin, which is not edible. The fruit contains a number of seeds covered with soft yellowish flesh. The flesh has a texture like avocado and is sweet. It’s extremely fragrant (or smelly – some love it, others not so much).

Malaysians love the fruit. A number of stalls are selling the fruit – eat-all-you-want style at a flat fee. The following photo was taken when I was out at one of the stalls.
