Hello! Today I am very excited to tell you about the fruit that I like the most. It is durian, do you know durian? Actually it is endemic food that only available in Southeast Asia. Durian is distinctive for its large size, strong odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. This fruit can grow as large as 30 centimeters (12 inches) long and 15 centimeters (6 inches) in diameter, and it typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lbs). Its shape range from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale yellow to red, depending on the species.
I live in Indonesia, and there is so many kinds of durian here such as Durian Sidodol at South Kalimantan, Durian Bokor at West Java, Durian Gantalmas at North Sumatra, etc. Durian tastes so nice. In Indonesia, there is also have Durian weather. Hahahaha.
On 16th June, my parents and I went to Penang, Malaysia. The taxi driver said that there were so many durians in Penang during May to August. My daddy is a durian lover, so he asked the driver where to buy the best durian at that place.
In the evening when we wanted to have dinner, we walked along Macalister street to find food to eat. Then we found durian stall beside a steamboat restaurant. We had our dinner there and it is the best night ever. There are some kinds of durian and you can't find it anywhere except Penang.
Each of them taste very nice and they have their own taste.
For Or Chi, it tastes almost the same like Durian Gantalmas in North Sumatra, Indonesia, but it has a bit bitter that make it so nice. Its flesh also very thick and as you see the color is between yellow and orange, so nice, huh? This is the cheapest durian there. It just RM35/kg or about IDR129,500. Then this is the first year that they sell Or Chi. The seller said that in the past year, Or Chi was not able to sell in public. This kind of durian just for the rich people there and the farm also owned by one of the rich people there. However, the owner had died last year so this durian is available for public now!
This is Luri Chocolate, this is the most unique durian ever. It has chocolate smell. Can you believe it? Durian with chocolate taste? You should try it.
This is Musang King! It smells so nice and like what I said, I think it tastes like pineapple. Go and try this one. This is about RM45/kg. Its flesh is gold color.
This is Kirby Chi. This is the best durian for those who loves wine. This durian smells wine and can make people a bit drunk and dizzy. This durian has a pale-color flesh. However, it is tasty. It is about RM35/kg
