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.

    • What racist comments?
    • Hello, Not a single rebuke from fellow Shia Chat members or Edits from Shia Chat Moderators?  But, to date, there are two likes? This post clearly violates Shia Chat rule number 4, No swear words, unmannered replies or racist comments, especially when directed at other members. A warning followed by a temporary ban shall be met. If a member repeats their offensive or racist language, a permanent ban will take place. No excuses. Overt slogans of "death" or "destruction" (or similar wording) of any specific government, nation, people, group, or religion is not permitted. However, constructive criticisms of the above are welcomed and encouraged. And, I question the morals of those that would allow a post such as Darth Vader's to go unanswered.  Many of you like to lament about the irrationality of "Islamaphobia."  Yet, you only clap and praise such racist and divisive post. It has been nice chatting with you all.  I have learned what I came here to learn. All the Best, David
    • Wasalam  Are you not allowed to see your daughter anymore sister?  If Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى can understand our thoughts I have no doubt that the creator of heaven, earth and hell can determine our dreams. Anything is possible sister and this very much could be a mercy of Allah bestowed upon you.

    • I heared a scholar saying that every sinner will burn in hell. And this burning is to cleanse him from sinns he committed. And this burning of sinner is mercy of Allah. Once he is cleansed from sins he will be send to paradise.
