    A frozen durian is rated 2 out of 10, and its still taste good. just imagine eating a fresh one. You will be asking for more……

    It’s an unfortunate term to use the word flesh, when it comes to raw food. Just saying. Nice channel. I support the movement on my site too. All the best.

  •   Kusunoky  |   

    Thats totally true!. You need to have that chance. Specially if there are many fresh durians all the place will smell even if there are a tree.

    hi doc, Im Indonesian, we’re so familiar with durian, I just wanna tell you just make sure u dont eat too much..or otherwise u will heat a lot…durian has a chemical that could rise human body temperature and could lead to fever and can cause faint in some cases… but durian is still sooo good, king of the fruit! just enjoy it πŸ™‚ in Indonesian language “duri” means a thorn, durian = thorny (fruit), same as like “rambut” = hair, rambutan = hairy (fruit), have a nice trip & experience guys πŸ™‚

    Don’t mean to be offensive towards people who love it, but honestly that’s the most disgusting thing I ever ate in my entire life. Matter of taste, maybe..

    Love Durian! I have had good success with frozen ones lately. I just look for ones that had started to split open before they were frozen. Once thawed they are easy to open and are usually very good. Some day I must have a fresh one that has fallen from the tree.

  •   MT World  |   

    Awesome video, LOVE Durian!

  •   Braelyn Brown  |   

    I tired frozen durian for the first time yesterday… I was not a fan at all…I guess i have to just try it fresh !

  •   Fantastic Idea Lets Do It  |   

    I had a frozen one in the UK, and it was horrid. I really want to try a fresh rip one.

  •   shauki boom  |

    Hail the King! I really need to learn how to do a handstand…

  •   Ky Cigni  |   

    I ate Durian for the first time two weeks ago. Even though it was frozen it tasted incredible. I’m addicted to it… I can’t get unfrozen ones though unfortunately.

  •   lalealynn  |   

    That’s just the smell.

  •   mohd zaini  |   

    no wonder y other country like america say durian smell terrible,, u all get the frozen one… try have the fresh one,,

    Homo sapiens evolved to eat COOKED FOOD, fact of human physiology, sorry.

  •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

    Seeing as human beings are part of nature and not apart from it, I believe that we need to eat raw foods for optimum health and well-being, just like all the other creatures on our planet.

  •   SanRafaelSwell  |   

    I respect your right to hold which ever beliefs you like. That being said, your “argument” is a non sequitur fallacy. It doesn’t necessarily follow that because all other life on earth eats raw food means we should too. Non sequitur, does not follow. The fact I cited still remains. Humans evolved to eat cooked food. You can see it in our teeth and our GI tract. Fact of human physiology, sorry. Deny the very nature of your humanity if you will, I refuse to follow suit.

  •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

    Eating a low fat raw food diet definitely makes us feel our best. Yes we can eat cooked foods but we don’t feel our best on them for sure. Cooking does destroy nutrients so when all said and done we go for the healthy raw.

  •   SanRafaelSwell  |   

    Funny that you can’t actually directly address the point I’m making. Kind of hard to argue against facts, isn’t it. You say you do it because it makes you feel good, drug addicts say the same thing. Just because it makes you feel good doesn’t mean it IS good. To make this correlation is yet another non sequitur fallacy and arguments that are fallacious aren’t to be taken seriously. Cooking also makes certain foods easier to digest, again, back to the FACT I mentioned that you keep ignorning

  •   dictionaryzzz  |   

    then why is it that raw foodists live longer on average than cooked food eaters?

  •   MrsMel Jammin  |   

    There is no need to argue with someone who is going to disagree with you anyways.. Some ppl think they know it all until they end up with problems with their health because of the lifestyle they choose. πŸ™‚ fruits n veggies are the BEST

    Before there was: “YES! YES! YES!”, there was: “SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR!”

    I just ate my first Durian. It was very creamy and rich. It tasted sweet,
    not bad.

  •   38tripleK  |

  •   Mricriz adriano  |   

    Durians have a wide range of tastes. Some are creamy and sweet. Some are
    stinky heavens…..

    Thank God there are still some people that try to put the truth out. Not
    many people left like that.

    In comments reportedly made during a press briefing for her new movie SALT,
    Angelina Jolie discussed her bad experiences with a vegan diet.

    β€œI joke that a big juicy steak is my beauty secret,” said Jolie. β€œBut
    seriously, I love red meat. I was a vegan for a long time, and it nearly
    killed me. I found I was not getting enough nutrition.”

    This is not an uncommon complaint among former vegans; the limitations of
    the diet require extra diligence to make sure you get proper nutrients.

    Durian would have Eskimos on 30 bananas a day and they would die.

    Taste get’s better every time

  •   Pro-methean  |   

    I like durian and mango , one is creamy and rich , one is refreshing sweet
    and shallow

  •   Daniel Verus  |   

    Wonderfull but too fattyfor me at summer ,and too expensive ,way too
    expensive . On fruit diet I was hungry ,whole grain foods,potatoe foods
    prepared well with vegetables ,fruits are the tastiest foods on planet ,and
    satisfy me ,because they are salty and high calorie,protein,minerals
    .Exotic fruits are great ,like all other plant foods,but way to expensive .
