I'm sorry to spoil the party for those who favor this fruit - but I will definitely not try this. To me, it smells like rotten garbage. I'm so sorry friends of the durian! I just can't! lol!

One day there was a noxious alarming odour at work (school) & the manager couldn't find out the cause. She searched everywhere, and then much too worried, called the gas company. There was no gas leak. Eventually, she discovered a grocery store bag a student left in a classroom contained the culprit, durian. When I came to work that evening, the odour was still strong. Durian is banned from our school now. ;-) (Kidding. Not kidding?)

It smells horribly but it is amazingly good for having its photography taken. Beautiful
