Fruit Of The Day - Durian

I just got back from a trip to Miami, where I feasted on all kinds of fruit. I think I had 48 that I had never had before, which is pretty astounding when you think about it.

Southern Florida is obviously a place that's ideal for raw foodism and health. Plenty of sun, plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, plenty of beach....

Anyway, one of my favorite viands was the Durian, an asian fruit that wreaks of onions and last week's garbage.

It tastes like ambrosia, though, and I'm already missing it. It's like the sweetest custard you could ever imagine.

They're armored like a tank, and heavy enough so they've been known to kill people when they fall from tress.

These Durians were from Asia, unfortunately, but still good.
