Durio zibethinus is a medium to large tree native to Borneo and Sumatra that can reach 45 ft in height. Its fruit, the durian, is regarded by many people in southeast Asia as the "king of fruits". This 6-10 in diameter, green to yellowish brown, fruit is distinctive for its large size and formidable thorn-covered husk. The edible flesh emits a distinctive odor that caused reactios that range from appreciatiion to disgust (sometimes compares to rotten onions or even sewage).
