Fresh Monthong Durian

The King of fruits. There is not much to say here except that there is a good cause why it is called the king. Creamy, delicious, dreamy Golden Pillow Monthong

Durian fruit is usually slightly oval, about a foot wide plus covered in terrible looking spikes. The fruit can weigh between two to seven pounds, and this is heavy sufficient that in holding it in your hands by the body of the fruit, in place of the stem, it might potentially pierce the skin. Though, its otherworldly look is dwarfed by another one of its attributes – the smell. Fresh durian has a strong, rank smell that pervades the outer shell plus lingers long after the fruit has been eradicated.

In spite of the stench, durian is very healthy, even more so than several other fruits. Naturally loaded in iron, vitamin C, plus potassium, durian develops muscle strength, skin health plus even lowers blood pressure

Whether because of its size – the fruit could weigh as much as 7 pounds – otherwise its taste, durian is frequently referred to by the public in Southeast Asia as the king of fruit. Because of the difficulty of cultivating durian – in addition to being risky while it falls, it needs very particular components in the soil, plus for shipping, durian is simply the most costly fruit as well.

The Chinese consider fresh durian and mangosteen to be the king plus queen of fruits owing to their opposing flavors – the durian is ‘warming’ because of its pungent smell and rich constancy through the mangosteen is ‘cooling’ owing to its juicy flesh plus somewhat acidic taste.
