Giant Durian at Serian Market


Serian is a town in Samarahan Division, Sarawak, east Malaysia. It is located about 40 miles (65 km) from Kuching.

The town is very famous for its durians, which are popularly believed to be the best in Sarawak. This has prompted the Serian District Council to erect a giant monument to this "king of fruits" right in the middle of the market square. The town is very well connected to its rich hinterland both by road and by water and one can find all sorts of jungle produce in the jungle produce market.

Have you seen the red durian flower? It is very hard to find. The meat is reddist, not like the original brownist. The local people fry the flower with curry powder or just only anchovies (ikan bilis in Malaysia). It is very tasty and crispy.....

Have you tasted durian before? Some people say it tastes like heaven, but smells like hell. So taste it and don't smell. It's wonderful. You will never want to forget it.

Now that is one fruit that does not want to be eaten (just look at those spikes!)

But it still looks good! :) Thanks for posting.
