Fruit Eater of the Week

Barry has accomplished the nearly impossible, an even greater feat than the Ironman. Barry has eaten a durian and liked it. He described the taste as follows: like texture of avocado, but tastes like custardy Camembert cheese that has been sitting around in the sun for a few days, fried with onions in oil and covered in honey.
The other fruits of the week are the tasty but tricky to eat Pu Toh San and the Lu Gu. As they don't speak much English, they did not disclose their English names to me.
