I don't know if durian counts as rare or unusual but I've never seen it here in Ireland. I tried it in Malaysia where it seemed to be everywhere. 

Even with the husk intact, the notorious Asian fruit has such a potent stench that it’s banned on the Singapore Rapid Mass Transit. Food writer Richard Sterling has written “its odor is best described as…turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away.”

It wasn't nearly as disgusting as I expected but I didn't particularly like it either.

Smells very bad, but tasty.

Reminds me of ashta, famous in Lebanon and also very good.

l like them.

I don't know whether mine was the correct ripeness. It tasted bland and a bit like sweet bread. All I know is the birds ate every other one, and there had been dozens growing on our tiny persimmon tree.

I have had some really sweet ones that tasted lovely. You know they are ripe when they are soft, very gently press against the flesh, it should give and not spring back. The inside should not be hard but almost has a jelly-ish texture, they are delicious in a persimmon pudding.

    • Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum  You are a human you think that way.  Our mind is limited Allah 3za wa jal has no limit He is Eternal. As the brother said above, wrong question. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah 
    • wrong question. look for other  similar topics on shiachat,
    • Sorry but when did I talk about non-hijabi women? Of course I've met many non hijabi women who are very modest and do value themselves. I do think you can still be modest without wearing hijab. However, my point is directed at the purpose of hijab. A hijabi woman may use hijab as a way/tool of objecting the whole concept of objectification of women. Women who dress more modestly - physically take a stronger stand to object this whole idea. (Although both can feel as passionate internally). For example, a woman dressed provocatively can equally feel very strong about the fact that all women should be judged based on their personality and not their bodies. Well, it is kind of contradictory because they dress provocatively but at the same time they feel passionate about objecting this whole idea.  There are two types of modesty, internal and external. Women who wear niqab should be given the credit of being more modest externally, although It is not compulsory at all. I don't see what your point is here.
