Ten of the World’s Strangest Fruits (slideshow)

  • 2 of 10

2. Durian
The durian is widely referred to as the “king of fruits,” but try to open one and you’ll be more likely to call it the “booby trap of fruits.” Once you’ve cracked through its spiky shell, the durian’s strange smell might make you wave your white flag. If you do decide to brave the spikes and the scent, you may be pleased to find that the fruit’s flesh is creamy and tastes of almonds.

My grandma grew custard apples which are grainy but nice. Uncorked unfortunately I am not a lover of fruit except for apples, berries and watermellon.

Number 10 looks like Chinese gooseberry which I have grown. Ranibutan is a lovely fruit that tastes like a posh lychee.
