King of Fruits

Durians aka King of Fruits! The hoomans have been bringing them home recently and I, being Queen (Reina) had to take on this so called King of Fruits. 

The durian is known for it's unique smell. When I say unique, I mean it. Some have related the smell to that of rubbish bins. Some steer away from it like the plague. It is so unique that durians are actually banned on public transport here in Singapore. No kidding! The durian, by smell is not for the faint hearted.

It's physical appearance is also one to behold. Rock solid hard and covered with spikes, it must have taken a very hungry/desperate hooman to first discover the fruit. Seriously, would you even think of plying open something like that?

This is how the inside looks like. Do not judge a book by it's cover. Looks slimy like hell, but in your mouth, it tastes like heaven. IMO, Durians are the next best things to Mutton and Cheese.

Dangle a couple of durians in front of us and we'll look like this...

If you haven't tried it, you should! Though it's only available in South East Asia.
