I’m in love with durian. I love the flavor, texture, and yup, even the scent. So, I flew myself to the other side of our planet, all the way to beautiful Bali, Indonesia, to visit during their 2 month durian season. There, I was able to enjoy a fresh durian daily, and even visited a durian farm where I ate fresh durian straight off the tree. This was the highlight of almost all my gastronomical adventures in life.

Many people in the USA have not yet seen or tried durian fruit. So, I shot this video in Seminyak, on the West Coast of Bali, as an introduction to the King of Fruit. I hope this video may encourage you to give this delectable fruit a try.

    I’m from the Philippines and we love durian! It’s also the season of durian here, so let me join you in enjoying this delicious fruit :) We also started planting some durian trees in our small farm down south. When those trees grow up and bear fruit I’ll invite you to come over and taste the harvest! (like 8 to 9 years from now?)
