30 Bananas a Day!

I went to the Asian market local (Houston) to me yesterday and they had a huge selection of tropical fruit. I was superexcited to see they had fresh whole jackfruit (I paid about $17) and frozen pieces of durian ($6) as well as frozen whole durian ($10). I have no experience with these fruits whatsoever and despite a few googlesearches and forum searches here feel at a complete loss.  I realize that the whole fruit isn't yet ripe, that it isn't organic, and the durian has been irradiated. But is there anyone here that can give me info or feedback on their experience eating these fruits sourced from Asian markets.  Also any info on how to tell when they are ripe, how to eat it, what it should taste like, etc... I thawed the frozen durian pieces in my fridge and just opened the package and it smells like gasoline to me. I want to try it but am kind of scared to eat something that smells so bad...

 

Also, kind of off topic, but any opinions on buying conventionally grown tropical fruits when the organic fruits available to you are somewhat limited?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

ETA:

 

So I went ahead and tried it and it wasn't bad at all, it tastes like a lightly sweetened onion custard. Considering my recent repulsion to onions, I am surprised I don't find it repulsive. Anyhow, I blended it up in the blender to make it more smooth and pudding like. I'll eat it all and the whole one as well but probably won't seek it out again, never say never though, sometimes I develop the most unlikely cravings...

Thanks for the response, I am feeling a little braver now, and may try it for my next "meal". I am usually a little more adventurous but I am currently pregnant and my tastebuds have become a lot more finicky than usual... I will come back and report my experience.
