Durian


Durian is another kind of tropical fruit in the Philippines and is one of my favorite. It is distinctive for its large size, unique odor, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour, strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Regarded by some as fragrant, others as overpowering and offensive, the smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust. The Davao region has been known as the durian capital of the Philippines. The region has, in fact, become synonymous with the durian fruit which many consider to possess such a savory taste the eater can afford to disregard how it smells.

I've experienced this fruit and it does smell horrible but I remember it tasted pretty good.
