Description/Taste

Black Thorn durians are small to medium fruits, averaging 1.5 to 3 kilograms, and generally have a round shape with a short, squat stem. The fruits sometimes display prominent, longitudinal seams, giving the surface a bulbous, bubbled appearance, and the angular, wide pyramidal spikes range in color from green, green-brown, to grey-green. At the bottom of the fruit, there is a distinct dried flower stamen found within the concave center, which is labeled as the “thorn” of the durian. This shriveled flower piece is not considered a defining characteristic of Black Thorn durians, as it can be easily snapped off, but beneath the stamen is a small, dark lump. Underneath the sharp exterior, the surface is sliced open to reveal large, fleshy lobes nestled in multiple chambers. There is also a valley or open section between the chambers in the core, sometimes known as a “drain,” revealing golden-orange tones. The flesh ranges in color from pale pink-orange, yellow, golden-orange, to dark orange depending on the tree's age. Dark flesh is an indication of mature trees. The flesh is finely wrinkled, almost fiberless, and has a very thin, translucent surface that can be easily pierced, releasing the soft, creamy flesh. Black Thorn durians are known for having a dense but soft, tender, and light consistency with high sugar and fat content, contributing to an intense, complex flavor. The flesh bears a rich, wine-like aroma and is sweet, fruity, pungent, and subtly bitter with a faint alcoholic aftertaste. It is important to note that fruits grown on mature trees have a more developed and favorable flavor. Younger trees tend to produce fruits with a very sweet, artificial-like strawberry taste.
