The fruit is covered with spikes and when you cut it open, it has a yellow color to it. There are at least thirty species of this fruit. People do cook with this fruit even though some find it gross. They may make milkshakes and rice and candy with it because some people taste a sweetness to the fruit.
Durian is a tropical fruit known for its large size and spiky hard outer shell. It has a smelly, custard-like flesh with large seeds.
