Our Most Unique Fruit Tree!
The Durian, nicknamed "the king of fruit" in Southeast Asia, is famous for its strong, pungent smell and prickly exterior.
But if you're not familiar with the Durian fruit, you might be surprised to learn that it's also high in nutrients - with an incredibly unique taste that's beloved in both sweet and savory dishes!
Both the flesh and the seeds can be eaten, although you'll need to cook the seeds before consuming. Durian is popular, especially in Southeast Asia, in juices, soups, curries and desserts, and can be eaten boiled or roasted. It's hard to pin down the flavor of Durian, but many say it tastes like a combination of cheese, garlic and caramel.
Plus, with more nutrients than almost any other fruit (including fiber, potassium, vitamin C, thiamine, manganese, vitamin B6 and more), the Durian packs a healthful punch.
Weighing as much as 18 pounds, Durian fruits can grow up to a foot long and six inches wide, with about two cups of edible fruit inside. However, since Durian thrives in the heat and humidity of Southeast Asian climates, you'll only get fruit from your Durian tree if it's grown in the ideal conditions, which are hard to find in North America.
Fruit or not, the Durian tree adds a tropical touch to greenhouses, patios and even backyards in the right conditions. These trees feature thick trunks with strong branches to support the heavy fruit, paired with large, bright-green foliage. Your Durian tree will also bloom with thick clusters of yellow, white or red flowers.
