30 Bananas a Day!

I'm a noob! This is my first time trying to eat durian. I got it in a box from a wholesaler. It was previously frozen. I (stupidly) thought it would ripen normally but now i'm thinking it won't.

I opened a few today. Please see photos below. Has this gone moldy on the inside? It seemed dry inside versus what I've seen online.

Hard to tell from the photos... How long have you had it unfrozen? I tried one recently, and kept it in the fridge for a few days before eating it. It was so delicious! They are generally ugly on the inside, so not sure. I guess it depends on how long you have had it out of refrigeration.

hi! i've had it out in the open for 3 days. is that too long?? i tasted it and it tastes creamy and oniony. i'm not sure i've grown to like it yet but yeah the inside looks...very alien which made doubt whether it was still good. for the moment i've decided to scoop out the yellow parts inside and keep them in tupperware to be refrigerated or frozen.

have you ever had durian go bad? what does the bad durian taste like versus what it normally tastes like?

thanks Melinda!!

  How does it feel to touch?  I've had some that were slightly rubbery but still good, but yours does look a little crusty.

And given that it was frozen and not fresh, I would not recommend keeping it out a refrigeration for more than a couple hours.  

If you have any doubt, don't eat it.  Not worth getting sick over.  

Now if you really think you bought it bad, rather than have it turn bad over the last couple days, don't hesitate to ask for your money back.  

it looks like an egg omelet right out of the frying pan. to the touch, its still soft but it has some parts that are kind of gray? is that normal? *sigh* okay next time i definitely will not keep it out that long!

Gray??  Unless you're talking poi, that's usually an unsafe color in produce.  I wouldn't risk it.  

You said wholesaler.  What price per pound did you pay?

Okay maybe i'll cut out the gray parts and stick with the yellow ones. Sorry, i hate it when things go to waste! but i'll do a taste test also before I put it in a smoothie

$30 for one big box. There were 5 of them in a box.

That's a great price for durian. Ours was frozen when we bought it. That's the eay they are sold here. It's too bad if yours is spoiled.

yeah i thought it was a great price! although in hindsight it may have been cheap for a reason ; p

Thanks btw!!!

sure thing.  if you're going to munch the yellow parts, I would do exactly that--nibble.  If you blend, you might incorporate nasty sections without even knowing it.  Let you sense of taste be your guide to what's still edible, if any.

And that is one seriously amazing price!

whats the correct way to thaw a frozen durian? i bought a frozen one as well and also have never tried it.

they'll thaw in a couple days in a fridge, or over a few hours in the sink.  

I've tried soaking them in a bowl of water, which works faster, but sometimes moisture gets through the shell.
