Durian

Durio

Description:

While walking the SAS rainforest, I noticed a fruit called a durian. For those of you who are unaware of what a durian is, it's a fruit that is native to South East Asia. This particular durian was about 6 1/2 inches long, or 16.51 centimeters. Like every durian, it had a large range of spike on the outer layer, and it was a brown/tan color. When it comes to durians, there is a pretty distinct smell, However, this durian smelled sweet unlike its unique, usual smell.

Habitat:

South East Asia (This one was found in the Singapore American School Rainforest)

Notes:

Durian trees can grow anywhere up to 150 ft. Durians are pollinated by fruit bats Durians are typically about the size of an American football

Don't forget to include how the leaves can help you identify a durian plant when it doesn't have durian on them!
