Hi ForumMates!

I have to admit that lips that touch durian shall never touch mine!

What is your experiences with durian?  Demon fruit or nectar of the gods?

Never had it, nor noticed a bad smell from it.

Never liked the smell.
Tried to taste it once, hate the texture of it.

My wife is in love with the fruit.  I try to make her eat it outside or in the Thai kitchen, not in the house.  BUT if you freeze it and eat it like ice cream, the smell is minimal.  I don't like the fresh fruit but really enjoy durian chips, better than potato chips!

 I think durian is one of those things you either love or hate.

 If you love it the smell is heavenly. If you hate it, it's enough to make you puke.

 I love it, but it has to be really ripe and soft.

 I remember one year there was a huge storm where they grew durians and it knocked all the fruit to the ground. They had to sell all the durians as soon as possible. They were selling here for 25 baht each!

Actually I can take it or leave it. When I take it, it keeps coming up for many hours after I eat it. Like Frank I love the chips.
