Durian is labelled the king of fruit in South East Asia. A thorny fruit the size of a football, it has edible flesh within which emits a distinctive strong odour which some people find either fragrant or overpowering and offensive. The odour causes the durian to be forbidden from certain establishments such as hotels.
