Durian is known to be one of the best fruits and a "King of fruits" in Southeast Asian countries as well as Vietnam.
There are many Durian varieties in our country such as: Kho Qua, Sau Huu, Chuong Bo, Monthong, Cai Mon and many others. But to judge the deliciousness and high nutritional value, the most delicious Durian is Ri6 - the King of Durian.
Durian is unique fruit with the thick and rough skin, covered with sharp thorns, inside, one will be fascinated by layers of bright yellow segments of meat shining like butter.
One may find Durian’s smell extremely unpleasant (to the extent that most airlines have to ban passengers from carrying this fruit on board). Yet if you can eat it, you will love it.
It has the special flavor of well-kept honey and rich in nutrition. “Smell like hell, taste like heaven”, that is what they talk about Durians.
In Vietnam, Durian is usually grown in the South East, Central Highlands and Mekong Delta, growing in Dak Lak, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Tien Giang, Vinh Long and Ben Tre provinces.
