umm, what is that funny looking fruit/vegie up above the FAQ?
My DD likes naming all the food pictures and has been asking about that one. I have no clue!

What part of the world do these come from. I have never been able to find one. My friend is in India at the moment so I was hoping that someone will tell me that they come from there so I can send her hunting for some to bring back to me.

They probably wont let it be transported for two reasons ~ infestation of bugs and stuffs from other countries (so, it would need to be sprayed) ~ and it stinks. They "might" let it be imported if it's already been processed.

You can find them in the US at Asain markets and grocery stores.

Although I've never actually eaten poop, that's what I would liken it to. :p

I do not know why I would want to go to the trouble of getting my friend to bring one in if that is the case. I got the impression from Alissa's DVD that it tasted yummy.

They actually taste very good. They do give off a pungent aroma and will have your whole house smelling like darian.

It's a matter of taste. To me, it tasted worse than just about anything I've ever eaten...AND couldn't get the taste out of my mouth for hours.
Like anything else, some folk like it. *shrug*
I like avocadoes ~ now. When I first came to California I couldn't imagine how anyone could.

I would say maybe a sweet pudding made with onion juice. I sooooo wanted to like these but the taste was off for me. After being raw awhile i might try again :)

Richard Sterling, as quoted in The Travelling Curmudgeon, says: "... its odor is best described as pig-sh*t, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock.
Or Fine durians are so extraordinarily delicious that it seems hard to understand that anyone could disparage them.
