A large, oblong-shaped tropical fruit with green/yellow skin that is also covered in sharp pointed spines. Flesh is divided into about 5 sections, each containing 1-6 seeds surrounded by creamy yellow pulp. Their flavour is quite unique. The durian is noted for its strong odour.
A yellowing in the skin and the fruit giving off a characteristic odour is a sign that the fruit has reached its maturity.
Ripened at room temperature then store in refrigerator. Keep sealed and away from other foods likely to pick up the strong odour of the ripe fruit.
