Hi sophialin, my friends told me that the taste of durian in Asia and US/Europe is really different. I wonder if its the reasn why Durian isnt popular in those country. Its also get in fear Factors test LoL :) I do love Durian, I do know if someone bring any durian from its smells. I could smelss it from 10 meters LOL I say that the smells is very attractivefor me, like a flower to a bee, in my opinion :). We are judge the flavuor or quality of the Durian from its smells before decided to buy one. You could get a bad Durian (yuks) if its not getting any unique smells from it, you could only get rooten Durian then. The ability to smells Durian is needed so I could buy Durian with cheap and got a high quality :p I think I could eat 5 big fruits of Durian, but I wouldnt recomended eating lots of Durian if you arent use to. Here, if you eat too much Durian you could get a sudden fever, but usually we prevent it just with a simple things; put a water on the fruits (the place of the yellow pieces was before you eat them) and drink from it. I know its sound funny for the first time, but its works! Now I could eat more Durian, but still remind myself that it isnt good if too much consume anything, including your favourite food.

i always like durian, it taste different and tasty to me...in my country we have 2 times for the season....we normally eat durian in 2 ways, one is to eat them fresh and another way is to cooked them mixed with other things like sweet green bean porridge with durian, chicken in coconut milk with durian and some other things too. I don't really know how i can change your mind to like the durian....but i think you should eat them more then u will know the different taste of it compare to the other fruits. and some more, try to eat the one which is from the good species, i am sure you will like them. Make sure the durian if ripe enough for you to eat. Unripe durian don't taste sweet but the too much ripen durian taste acidic and a bit bitter so u wouldn't like it i guess.
