    Never heard of durian fruit not jackfruit! Probably not all exotic fruit varieties are coming to my local groceries. It would be absolutely wonderful to make a trip to both cities. I love to descover new palces and that climate seems to pretty fanatstic as well.

    My husband works at a university and knows a graduate student from the Philippines. So he asked him about this funny looking fruit. He said, oh yes, it’s absoluly delicious, but you have to wear gloves when handling it or your hands will smell like durain for the rest of the day. Thank-you for telling your readers more about it! x

    I’ve heard about durian fruit (and it’s smell) before. Despite how bad people say it is I would definitely like to smell and taste it for myself one day.

    Durian!!! I’ve never heard about or tried it. But I’m more than happy to try anything new and exotic. I’ll give it a try whenever I visit Manila. Thanks for sharing!

    The fruit looks quite exotic. I had plans of visiting Manila many years ago, wasn’t sure the places or the time to visit. March and August now look like good times to visit and enjoy the festival.

    It looks like Jackfruit. I never knew of Durian and would really try it when visit to a tropical country.

  12. Natasha says:

    I am always willing to try something at least once. If I’m ever in the area, I will definitely have to give this interesting food a try.

  16. Liza Perry says:

    I have never seen that fruit! I thought first of dragon fruit but I think I would try it!

  17. Ashley says:

    I haven’t tried either, but they both sound interesting. You were mentioning the smell was strong, what does it smell like?

  18. sian says:

    I am one of those people that never tries new things due to being scared.. maybe I should try and say yes to this! I am not sure though!!

  19. Kailash Joshi says:

    I’ve never try these fruits, or even heard about it. But I definitely would love to!

  22. Nandita says:

    Durian surely is a fruit with a very distinctive smell as I came to know from my visits to Singaporean food courts. Though I like ripe jackfruit, I could never make myself taste durian. However, it’s interesting to know that it can provide 33% of our daily thiamine requirement!

  23. Rhian Westbury says:

    I’d never heard of this fruit, although I have tried jackfruit before and it was really nice x

  24. hal says:

    this sounds really interesting but i don’t think based on your description this would be something i would like – i’m kind of scared lol

  25. Shannon Sawicki says:

    I have never heard for this fruit before, and you have provided a lot of information about it. I am not sure they are available on the west coast of Canada but i will keep my eyes open.

      I’m not so sure as well as I’ve heard it usually abundant for tropical countries. But there are products like candies, ice creams, chocolate flavoured durian.

    I remember strolling on the street of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown when I encountered the first time the Durian. The smell of something dead or rotten surrounded me all of a sudden, without warning. Oh my, it was so bad. I didn’t have the curiosity to try it though. How can something so smelly be delicious haha?

  27. Wynne Katherine says:

    I have had durian before, but I am not one of those people who like it. It tastes way too fatty for me, but regardless, I have heard that people who love it really love it, and people who hate it cant stand the smell of it. You cant be in the middle ground with durian ahah

  28. SM Raiyyan says:

    New things everyday! Well, I have never heard of Durian till I read your post and sounds exciting after reading the post. Would love to have a go at it 😛

  29. Sheri says:

    This is very interesting and I know this fruit but you really had a lot to add about it. I have a friend traveling soon and I will show her this to try it.

  30. Kim says:

    I’ve tried durian in Thailand and it really is an amazing fruit and so full of nutrients – it’s just a same the smell is so off putting!

  31. Aditi says:

    I have never really consumed a durian in its raw form but I have tried the durian chocolates; I don’t know if that counts. Thanks for sharing this super helpful post. I’m planning to visit Manila soon, I might give it a try then. 🙂
