Photographer's Note

This spiky customer is called a durian and is considered a delicacy amongst Asians, particularly Chinese. It is definitely the season at the moment for picking/selling them and many trucks pass us each day fully loaded. It takes a bit of work getting that skin off but once removed it reveals a soft yellow flesh. To those that who have acquired the taste (not me!) it is the worlds best tasting fruit, its hard to describe but when you smell one you'll know the taste. Oh yeah, the smell, many hotels ban durian, airlines ban durian, many countries ban durian in selected public places - they stink. Maybe thatís why I can't acquire the taste, can't get close enough.
