Durians - For Bundawah

Durian stall at night market. They were selling 3-4 packets for RM 10. There were around 2-3 seeds per packet. Of course there are better quality ones where they charge RM 10 per kilo.
Durian used to be a seasonal fruit but I see them very often nowadays.
Loving durian is an acquired taste. It's quite common that the foreigners who visit Malaysia find the fruit a bit 'overwhelming'. As easily as it can be found in Malaysia, there are still some local people I know who simply can't stand the smell of durian.
Haa but durian is not my favourite fruit. I would post some of it soon. :)

I must admit I've never heard of durian before. I don't think we can buy it here. It's interesting to learn about new things on the blogs. Thanks for your visit to my blog. It's much appreciated!

I've heard of durian and I've heard the smell is just awful but the taste is good. I'd love to see one some day!

I grew up with jackfruit, but I never learnt to appreciate it. I'm guessing I won't be lining up to buy durian either, hmm? ;-)
