Ah, Druians! The word brings forth the strong scent of the exotic fruit. You love it or you hate it!
To us locals of tropical countries, especially in south-east Asia, it is the most popular and most expensive fruit. Whenever is the season, we must eat some! The lure and temptation are there! The scent will coax and persuade you till your heart softens and succumbs to the temptation of buying and eating them!
Many writers have attempted to write and teach others how to choose a good durian. The many methods and ways are numerous. I am not going to add one more. I just want to write a poem in praise of the fruit in my own usual style. Hope you like it!
King of fruits,
Generates love or hate!
Constantly sought after by locals,
Its flesh’s worth more than gold;
Yellow, red, grey or white,
Strongly fragrance and delicious,
Finger-licking, wanting more,
The Q AND A WITH A DIFFERENCE WILL BE HELD OVER FOR THE TIME BEING. It will resume when I have gathered more Q and A SORRY FOLKS, MY SINCERE APOLOGIES!
