Durian is known as the smelliest fruit on earth, so what does durian taste like?
In this Discovery List adventure, I’ll be trying Durian for the first time! Now in this post, I tell you about my experience trying jackfruit for the first time! Now jackfruit, durian, I was excited to try both when I got to China but what’s the difference? Here’s the difference! Jackfruit has been described as tropical, sweet, and delicious… However, people have described the smell of durian as rotten cheese, gym socks, the worlds smelliest fruit. I saw one guy nearly vomit after trying it. Think about it, a fruit that smells so bad, some establishments ban it, the stench can be smelled from yards away. knowing that, what would durian taste like!? So although I wanted to try it, do you see why I would be a little nervous?
When I found out that I would be going to China, I added things I wanted to do and try onto my Discovery List; durian was on the list because I’ve never even seen one here in the states. And because it’s found in Asia, I finally had the opportunity to go to try it for the first time. One day, I was roaming around a super market and I found myself in the produce section and I thought to myself, isn’t that a durian? As I walked closer and closer, I began to ask, what’s that smell!? Yep, it was the durian fruit… We’ll get to what it smelled like in a second. But for now, let’s just leave it as a nice… HOT Damn!
So Zoe, What’s durian taste like?
Obviously, in the video above, I describe the smell as cheesy ass, but in my opinion, it’s quite good! Durian tastes like a fruity custard. It like it has mango, banana, pear, and cheese all mixed in one. But of course, that’s my take on it and different pieces of fruit can taste different according to how ripe the fruit is and so on. It has a bit of an off putting texture but honestly, once you get past the smell, the texture, and you make your OMG THIS IS DISGUSTING face, it’s almost enjoyable.
Would I try it again?
Probably… I’d love to buy a full durian, cut it open and get a group of unsuspecting friends together to try it. I’d get a kick out of everyone looking around at each other wondering who booty burped…
