Because, of all the fruits in the country, this is just my favorite of them all!
And most of all, its indescribably offensive aroma which others may even describe as horrid, mucky, yecchy, yucky or just foul, is simply heavenly to me!
At the festival, it was a blast seeing the fruit get opened right right before you and then neatly packed into these tight (not air-tight though) plastic containers ready to go.
You either love this fruit or you don't. There is no going in-between. It would be almost impossible to describe the taste of the durian fruit. You can read all you want about it but you would have to take a bite to understand and realize why they call the durian the "King of the Fruits".
