The King of Fruits’ Season

At this time of the year, the fruit farms at the hills and rainforests of Penang are once again teeming with durians, a popular and unique local fruit. Although the durian has a very strong scent, the fruit is actually very tasty for those who like it or can go pass the strong scent.
