We are told you either love or hate durian. You have to try it at least three times to make a decision. The meat of the fruit is any where from yellow to red. Elder Berger bought some and shared it with us when we gave him a ride. It has the consistency of peanut butter. We scooped it up with our fingers. It was ok, I didn't love or hate it. So maybe that means I would grow to love it. But it has a very strong smell. The smell lingered for about a week in the vehicle even though Elder Berger was in the car only for about 20 minutes. I decided for that reason I would not have it in my home or car again. The sign is from a hotel elevator. It is banned from most buildings. There are lots of jokes about it but the natives love it. Even M & M gets involved in the fun about the Durian.
