The durian is shaped like a capsule and resembles a hedgehog. Its rind is
green and/or brown in color and is entirely covered with spikes and thus, most people handle the durian with gloves to avoid
injury. The durian divides into five parts when ripe and each segment contains brown seeds. Its flesh can be white, yellow,
pinkish, or orange in color depending on the fruits variety and origin. Its flavor is creamy and sweet although it is characterized
by its strong smel.
