Durian Fruit

Jan 18, 2012

Durian is a fruit unique to Southeast Asia.


About six centuries ago, Niccolo Da Conti, a Venetian merchant
who traveled to countries of Western Asian and China
in 15th century had mentioned durian fruit in his documents.

Garcia De Orta, a Portuguese physician, mentioned the Durian fruit in his book
named Coloquois dos Simples e Drogas da India launched in 1563.
In 1974, the book, Herbarium Amboinense published by the Georg Eberhard Rumphius,
German Botanist, also gives a detailed and well-researched account on the durian


A Australian naturalist, Edmund James Banfield, got a durian seed in 2000
from one of his Singaporean friends and planted it in Queensland and
he is the first introducing durian to Australians


Some people even believe that the durian has a magical power to keep young and look young,
without facelifts or other cosmetic or plastic surgery.
You can eat durian for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,
but remember Durians have a unique taste, but a strong smell


The durian is a seasonal fruit,
not like some non seasonal tropical fruits available anytime, such as the Papaya.
Prices of durians are relatively expensive
