Durian Fruit

Rambutan | Mangosteen/Buah Manggis | Durian
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.

 
 
The durian is ripe when it exudes a strong, but not sour aroma. The whole durian can be stored at room temperature. After opening, the segments should be refrigerated in a tightly sealed container for up to seven days. Wash your hands with durian seeds to remove the odor of durian from your hands.
