We have been commenting on Durian on various other posts and polls but I figured the King deserved its own dedicated poll.

Durian is top on my list ''Exotic & weird Fruit's I want to taste''

I would prefer to eat a freshly dropped Durian, In it's native land! NO frozen or under ripe Durians for me!!!!! ;)

Here's a place I want to visit!
A day at Durian-lover's paradise

You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Enjoy every moment of your life!

I've had both fresh and frozen/imported durians in the past, and generally I loved them all except for the ones which were extremely dry inside for some reason.  My only complaint is that, like jackfruit, they are very addictive and it has sometimes been difficult knowing when to stop eating.

fruitlovers I have only had samples of them and D.testud...? and I prefer to sink my teeth into slabs of flesh rather than rake my teeth over seeds for scant flesh.Each has their own character but still are not on par with zibethinus.

Testudinariium not considered edible by most, more of an oddity. I found oxyleanus and kutajensis to have plenty of good pulp inside to eat. Still yet to try graveolens.
