Durian Ice-cream is sort of childhood passion that combines my families love of ice-cream and sort of the recognized national dessert of Asia. Duran is a giant fruit that grows on trees and comes with a naturally creamy taste of goodness. Like I have previously mentioned it is custard like desert that is really popular in Burma. I see this fruit in the store and there are times, when I will not buy it. They just want too much for it. The durian fruit is the fruit of several different types of tree species. The hard oblong exterior shell can grow to be over 12 inches long and anywhere from 2 to 7 lbs in size. The hard exterior and weight can make the fruit very dangerous as it matures and becomes ready to be picked. Think about coconut hardness at about 3 times the weight and size. Before you make fun of this fruit, please realize that there is a cultural significance in southwest Asia to such a fruit. It popularity has given this fruit a nickname, the king of fruits. It is an important export of Thailand and even there has been a popular TV series made about this fruit. There is even a building in Singapore, which is oddly shaped, named the Esplande, but referred to the durian for its uncanny likeness to the exterior shell of the durian fruit. Sure there is the orange bowl in Florida, but does it actually look similar to an orange. So I recommend that you be like Anthony Bourdain, from his hit show,â€ No Reservations,â€ and embrace the custard like fruit. Get past the smell and learn to eat with your taste buds and not with your nose. After all, life is short and it is worth trying new things.
