The durian experience
My dad agreed that this durian tasted too much like onions, and that he would not enjoy eating the rest. Overall, it was a great experience and an interesting fruit. We ate a decent amount (me eating the most). The fibrous outside around each pit tasted the most like onions, with a garlicy aftertaste, but some of the fruit right next to the seed tasted much sweeter, and very creamy. My dad figures it must not have been ripe enough. He said his durian had split open all by itself, but we actually cut into ours. Even so, we froze the leftovers and will thaw them whenever we have someone over who would like to have a durian experience.
