Postharvest information and storage requirements for Durian


"The best durian I think, comes from Sarawak, Malaysia [I am biased because I used to live there], where they are naturally grown. The cultivated varieties are not as tasty as the wild ones. A lot of people find the smell disgusting. A tourist brochure compared eating durian to 'eating custard in a dirty public lavatory'!
