After penetrating the outer skin, the durian seeds greet one with a strong smell, which to locals is gorgeous but to me is vile. The seeds are sticky and have a taste like mouldy onions. I have tried time and again to swallow some of the durian, but I just can't bring myself to do it. My wife however, loves the stuff!
The wrong way to open a durian!
Lauren found it all rather boring
