I shared passion fruits and chayotes with my neighbors and friends in the morning.
Both of the yield so plentiful for my little family.
In the afternoon, I got a special gift from my friend.
Look... I got three Durians from his garden
Durian (Durio zibethinus) is a special tropical fruit.
Durian is refer to 'duri' means thorn.
Look the thorny skin.
It have very strong in taste and aroma.
The pulp is sweet, smooth and buttery.
The texture is so creamy in the really mature fruit.
Durian have best taste and texture on the peak of the ripening stage.
Farmers usually collect the fallen fruit on the ground.
Sometimes they belt in the fruits to the stem so that the fruits do not fall to the ground.
The over ripening fruit has alcoholic aroma.
Actually I don't like this fruit caused by the strong aroma.
But the taste is really good.
The fruit is very expensive.
So... durian is also called 'Tropical King of the Fruit'.
Look the seed...
In Java, it's called 'pongge'.
It's edible, best to boiled then roasted, or fried.
So... it will be a delicious snack!
Do you want to taste it?
