    I accidentally found some at a grocery store today. Those little buggers are expensive!

    Has anyone else ever had this wonderful, impossible-to-open little fruit before?

    The inside looks a bit like garlic cloves, and the taste is unique... a bit vanilla, a bit orange. It works.

    I'm a bit morbidly obsessed with finding one. I know it'll stink up my apartment, but I want to try! :eek:

    They are very good once your nose gets used to their paticular aroma. think rich vanilla creme. with a hint of some fruit.
    very good.
    try a local asian market they usually have them in the frozen section if they dont have any fresh ones.

    Durian is gross. I think my mum likes it, but she has poor taste. :p
