What About Some Durian?

One friend of mine said, you either love the durian fruit or hate it. There can be no neutral feeling towards this fruit with quite a distinctive smell :)  Well, you can count me in as one of those who love it :)

Some friends from New Zealand claim that the best tasting durian in the world is found in Malaysia. Well, I am not sure about that. Although I have been to Malaysia, I didn’t get the chance to taste their durian while I was there. I have tried durian in the Philippines (particularly from Davao), Thailand and Singapore. Guess what? I think it is delicious whichever place it came from.

The durian fruit is a significant source of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. For more information on this “amazing” fruit as well as some of its health benefits, click here.

Ok, so are you eating durian with me or not? :)

    Honestly, I have never tried this fruit even though I am from the Philippines. I should and I will when we get back to Pinas someday. :) Visiting via BPC.

    I will never enjoy the goodness of durian because I can’t stand its smell. I haven’t tried eating it yet.

    1. Deli

      Not really :) It has a different kind of sweet and creamy, too :) It has a strong, distinct smell that’s why some people don’t really like it.

    My daughter’s fave, she always love to eat that. Visiting from YS

    Durian feasting is always fun and great when it is spent with friends or family! Kaya ayaw soloha na Ma’am aron di ka matuk-an. Just kidding! I love Durian, but for reasons I don’t know why, dali ra ko masumhan. Di ko kahurot ug more than one flesh from its liso. But I sure enjoy seeing my companions feasting on them! :D I’ve heard that the best durian is from Thailand daw. When I lived in Davao and had a lot of them, I would say the Davao kind are the best! But when I’ve tasted the ones bore from our own durian tree in Bukidnon, I concluded that those the the best kinds! :)

    I miss eating them. Maabot diri kay frozen from thailand and I dread its smell na. Lahi ra jud ang presko kaayo nga open.

    BPC hop!

  16. rona

    Oh! I love durian! And I don’t really mind the smell you know. That’s why I wonder why some people hate it. Different taste buds tlaga. Paying a visit here from CC!

  17. Perfectly Blended

    Oh, I don’t eat durian. :( But my husband loves it very much!

  18. mommynuts

    Oh, whenever we’re in supermarket, I always want to get one in my cart because of the smell but I actually don’t like the taste. I eat somehow, but I don’t really love the taste. ok lang.. hihi

  19. Jessica Cassidy

    Hi – this year’s World Durian Festival takes place 4-13 May in Chnathaburi, Thailand; some info and photos from last year’s event here:
    http://chanthaburi.tumblr.com/tagged/durian
    There is a ‘Miss Durian World beauty/fashion show, but i am unsure in the entrants have to eat durian on stage.! Or have a face like a durian.
    We live 3km from Noen Soong which is the main market/selling and distribution point for local durian. Chanthaburi produces 80% of the Thailand durian export crop of 220,000 tonnes, it goes mainly to China (40%) and Malaysia, Cambodia, Taiwan, Indonesia and Singapore.
