Duaians… Unless you have smelled them up close you just won’t understand what all the hub-bub is about. I can, for a fact, tell you that very fresh durians smell/taste better than ones that have been frozen. That aside, a researcher has discovered that by breeding 90 different varieties of this stinky fruit the odor can be reduced enough to make them edible by most people. This, of course, has the durian lovers up in arms.
