"Black Thorn" Durian: Durio zibethinus Seeds

Ochee Black Thorn Durian (Durio zibethinus or better known as Ochee because the outer skin has black spines, is a type of superior durian that is cultivated and superior in Malaysia. This type of superior durian began to exist in northern Malaysia since the 80s and began to gain its reputation in 2005. 

The characteristics of the superior black thorn durian fruit include the flesh being golden yellow, the smell is fragrant, the texture of the flesh is soft and creamy. This superior ochee durian does have medium seeds but has a higher number of pongge formations (usually 4-6 fruit pulp units) than other durians. The taste is also sweet, a little bitter but will soon melt with its delicious taste.

Durian (Durio zibethinusis the edible fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio. There are 30 recognised Durio species, native to Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand; at least nine of which produce edible fruit. Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering and unpleasant. The persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, led certain hotels and public transportation services in Southeast Asia to ban the fruit. However, the nineteenth-century British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace described its flesh as "a rich custard highly flavoured with almonds". The flesh can be consumed at various stages of ripeness, and it is used to flavour a wide variety of savoury and sweet desserts in Southeast Asian cuisines. The seeds can also be eaten when cooked.
