Typically a marsh tree, durians grow tall but have relatively thin trunks. This tree is perhaps most well known for its fruit -- a round, prickly, melon-sized fruit called, aptly enough, a durian fruit. The fruit has a very strong smell, and a taste that some people find pleasant and others find highly unpleasant. Durian can be found in tropical groves.
Durian wood planes to a smooth finish and is reddish brown.
