The Durian Fruit CHALLENGE! The Durian Fruit is common in Asia, but it’s unique smell and flavor has us baffled! The best way we could describe the smell is a mixture of over-ripe bananas, a hint of pineapple, and natural gas! The natural gas smell is actually quite strong, and in most major cities it is illegal to eat this fruit in public places because of the awful smell.
Ironically this smelly fruit is is considered the “king of fruits” in Southeast Asia, but in Idaho it hasn’t earned the title! The husk of the durian fruit boasts elaborate spikes, and a strong stem that holds the fruit on the tree. I have read online that the best time to eat a durian fruit is just after it falls from the tree. Just make sure you aren’t standing under it…it’s been known to kill people! Enjoy our experience as we try the durian fruit for the very first time! We are pretty sure the fruit we tried was over-ripe, so we might have to revisit this challenge in the future! Doing the taste test challenges are one of our favorite things to do on our YouTube channel! It’s always such a fun experience to try new foods, and to experience things from all over the world. Durian Fruit is like nothing we’ve ever seen before, so enjoy our pain as we attempt the DURIAN FRUIT CHALLENGE!
