The word durian is derived from the Malaysian word for thorns, durio. It's most outstanding characteristic, however, the pungent aroma that issues from the fruit once it is ripe. No edible product in the Western World rivals this odor in strength unless it be Blue Cheese, and that is only considered edible by extremely questionably sources.
Yet durian is proclaimed by many to be the food of kings, the sweet ambrosia of the jungle, and the taste of heaven. Within that hard, spiny husk is a custard as smooth as a whipped pudding, sweet as vanilla ice cream, and savory as any garlic bread. Perhaps it's the best tasting foods in the world.
D101 is a sweet, bitter durian, and with a good fragrance, the D101 which originally came from Johor, has a very creamy smooth red orange flesh with small seeds. Dessert lovers will definitely love the D101 because the flavour and the taste are almost similar to what you will get when you eat a creamy thick molten chocolate cake. D101 is considered the most unique and wonderful taste – you can literally taste the opposites of both sweet and bitter as you slowly suck on its flesh.
