Durian Chanee sold in Yangon
Widely known and revered in southeast Asia as the "king of fruits", the durian is distinctive for its large size, unique odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk.
One of the most popular and sought after durian varieties in Burma Chanee is soft, buttery, and has a sophisticated bitter accent in its flavor. It reminds me somewhat of the Thailandian Durian varieties I love so much.
Most foreigners refuse to eat or smell this fruit but once they discover the taste most of the will like it.
I needed a long time to get accustomed the great taste of this king of the fruit, now it is my favorite.
