Do you know what this is?
It's a durian. Haha. An exotic Asian fruit, and an acquired taste. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't. I personally like it. I've eaten it as a child, so I don't mind it. People say there's a pungent smell from it, but I don't smell that. I think it smells nice? Haha. Like I said, it's an acquired everything.
Weirdly enough, Woolworths has been stocking durians. Unfortunately for them, they don't know how to store them properly. I mean, they're frozen in the first place, but they don't even refrigerate them on shelf so they go off.. I've seen a few moulding at times, and bugs crawling... GROSS!
It's pretty expensive if you think about it. I decided to analyse its fruit content.
I took the flesh out of its 4 compartments and weighed it.
823g of durian flesh.
Now, this weight includes it's seeds. Which would probably weigh 100g give or take.
The whole durian was 2.597kg - 823g of flesh = 1.774kg of inedible durian carcass! O_O
So basically, you pay about $7.06 for the shell only! So only $3.28 is edible. Actually, not even. It's less than that after you remove the seeds.
So there you go. Durian is an expensive fruit. Buy it only if you like it. Eat it whenever you can. :P
