Even in Asia, there are mixed feelings about Durian - I lived in Malaysia
for a while and they don't all agree about it!  I tried it only once, the
flavor isn't strong or bad once you get past the smell but I think you have
to learn to get past the smell, and why bother when there were so many other
amazing fruits available...

Perhaps compare it to Limberger and Lutefisk?
