Durian is a large spherical fruit, it can weigh up to 18 pounds.It has a hard, thick exterior that is yellow or yellow-green in color, and densely covered in sharp thorns. Inside the fruit are about five oval compartments or pods, each filled with soft, meaty pulp that varies in color from cream to yellow.The rich, smooth, custard-like pulp can be eaten at various stages of ripeness, and the reddish-brown seeds can be eaten if cooked. The pulp offers a blended sweet yet savory taste, and flavor profiles range from having notes of vanilla, banana, butterscotch or milk chocolate, to more savory notes of cream cheese, caramelized onions or even a bitter, egg-like taste. Both the texture and taste of Durian fruit is likened to a natural crème brûlée, given the fruit’s inherently high sugar and fat content.it has earned the title “King of Fruit” in many parts of Southeast Asia where it is widely celebrated for its unique flavor as well as its health benefits. There are multiple species of Durian, but only a handful of them are commonly utilized for culinary purposes, and only one species is found on the international market; Durian fruit is rich in sugar and healthy fats, but it also has extensive vitamin and mineral content that is attributed to its many health benefits, including boosting the immune system, protecting against heart disease, aiding in the prevention of cancer, strengthening bones, lowering blood pressure, and more. Durian fruit is an excellent source of energy because it is high in carbohydrates, and also contains a good amount of dietary fiber, essential for normal function of the digestive system. It is rich in vitamin C (more so than most tropical fruits), protein, folic acid, vitamin A, B vitamins, and important minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, zinc, and phosphorus. Durian fruit also contains tryptophan, also known as nature’s sleeping pill, which may induce a feeling of relaxation and happiness. Hence, Durian fruit is thought to help relieve feelings of stress or depression.Durian fruit is most commonly eaten raw, and can be used in sweet or savory recipes. Once ripe, the tough skin can easily be cut open and the pudding-like pulp can be scooped out and eaten raw, though some recommend chilling it first. Durian fruit is used in a number of Southeast Asian recipes, particularly in desserts. It can be blended or pureed, baked into cakes or custards, or used to flavor ice cream. The flesh is often mixed with sugar and wrapped in a pancake, or wrapped in rice paper and deep-fried. Durian fruit is also canned, dried, or processed into a paste for local use as well as exporting. In Bangkok, much of the paste is mixed with pumpkin. The large, fleshy seeds may be roasted, boiled or fried and eaten as nuts, and even the young leaves and shoots are occasionally cooked as greens. Durian fruit pairs well with other tropical fruits, like mango, as well as coconut cream, sticky rice, salt, onion, and vinegar. Durian is believed to be native to Malaysia and Indonesia, specifically Borneo and Sumatra.
