    They are so good! Bought a case of 9 for just 8 bucks! Couldn't pass it up. Whack open the top, poke in a straw and enjoy. And as a final treat, get a spoon and dig out the mildly sweet jelly-like meat!


    I'd get a durian but they are so pricy. Mmmm....

    I was lucky. Growing up in Key west we had several trees in our yard. I loved eating the jelly from the barely ripe ones. I also loved the milk. Dont much care for plain coconut though. Dont like the texture.

    Coconut . . . yum . . . but durian? We bought one because we thought people were exaggerating about the smell. Silly us. Thank goodness the nice lady at the asian market told us to cut it open outside, or we all would have suffocated. We had a ton of people over to try it, and the consensus on the taste description was sweat socks mixed with garlic. It's such a fascinating fruit, though, and I thought the seeds were so neat, like li'l smokies.

    What I'm really craving right now is jicama . . . mmmm.

    I think I'll stick with the food coconut. :p

    Got the box at 99 ranch market. It looked like a fresh shipment as the husks were all still white and moist without mold or pink bacteria/fungus growing. The chickens tend to ignore coconut for some reason. Just not their flavor I guess.

    Duran is one of those acquired taste things. Mmm soo good even though it is pretty stinky. LOL Not a party food for an American audience, that's for sure. Maybe it's the blue cheese of the fruit world. Mmmm blue cheese.
