Yummy Durian

Yes! Finally after quite a long wait I got to taste the heavenly fruit again! It is Durian, also known as the King of Fruits in Southeast Asia.  

"The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour, strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Some people regard the durian as fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and offensive. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as almonds, rotten onions, turpentine and gym socks. The odour has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia." [Quoted]

For hoomans, it is either they love it or they hate it.  Personally I think us doggies would love it due to its strong aroma.  Santa (and her gang) has previously blogged about this same fruit before here.  Today it is my turn.

This is the flesh (wrapping the seeds) already removed from their spikey shell.  Santa has a nice photo of the flesh still in the shell, do go over to view.

How I'd wish videos can capture aroma too so you furriends can smell it and decide if you'd like it!



  1. I've never tasted or smelled durian before. But I do love stinky socks so maybe I would like it!

  2. I am wondering how big it is! It looks huge in the picture! I am going to have to google it, I am sure Finn would love it!

  3. Ahhh durians..i can't seem to take the smell but i do know my grandpa loves it alot despite the doctor's advice..hahaha
    Thanks for dropping by and I'm glad to meet you.

    Love ya,
