Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of a wild heritage tree which was named after Penang. Locally known as Durian daun tajam. Durio pinangianus. The tree has pinky orange flowers and a spikey fruit similar to the domestic durian but there’s not much flesh for eating. It is the lesser know cousin.

The domestic one is called “durillon” in french? Smells awful but tastes delicious? spreads around most south east asia?

I’m sure they will be there eventually. 🙊

If they were for sale in my local grocery I think I’d try this or the domesticated one. I eat camembert cheese and smoked whitefish and they’ve got an aroma.

Yes stinky 😆

They stink but this one is hardly worth eating. I don’t like eating durians, I’m a bad Penangite 😆

LOL – I was going to ask the same question as unclerave.

Does it stink like the fleshy Durian? They grow them in the Philippines, and they are a VERY acquired taste! — YUR
