To be honest, I probably looked no different the first time I tried. I have eaten a lot of strange things in Africa and Asia, but I just cannot get my palate around Durian.

This fruit does not suit everybody's palate. My girl enjoys the fruit, and at times I will eat it, but not too often.

Khmer call Durian "The King of Fruit." I have told my wife that if she wishes to eat with His Majesty to please do so far from my nostrils.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

We have a deal: she does not bring Durian into the house; and I don't bring home a nice, ripe, Munster-gerome.

Been looking for Mopane the last two years as I have a bet going with a friend. Only ever tried the dried ones.
