We don't get durian in India (although I had a marathon durian, rambutan and mangosteen eating session in the Philippines many years ago), but jackfruit is almost as smelly.

Eating durian - gestatory samadhi.

I like the taste good enough, but it smells horrible. But the horrible smell is seasonal and thus has its own allure.

I've experienced Durian and I agree the smell is not great, I enjoyed the taste though.

I remember staying in a hotel in Thailand and the room absolutely stank! The guest before had been eating durian. That smell relly lingers.

One of my besty Vietnamese friends in Orange County fed me jackfruit. I was aghast when her little girl commented about how it makes every one fart. I love how those people just say it how it is. LOL.
