Banned from some fancy hotels, offensive to many: durian just might be the Charlie Sheen of the fruit world. Grown primarily throughout southeast Asia, it’s said to be the king of fruits. The easiest way to identify a durian is not its shape but the way it smells! Some people think it’s the taste of heaven, others compare it to the smell of of a rotting corpse. We love the polarizing reactions. We love durian!
