Many wonder why durian stinks. The answer lies in the volatile sulfur-based compounds present in it. These can in fact give it a very strong smell reminiscent of that of onions or rotten eggs. Nonetheless, it seems that its flavor is so particular that it can even be addictive.

Going instead to where to find durian in Italy, the fruit is available online or can be ordered through trusted retailers. In rare cases it can be found in some ethnic shop. However, it is difficult to see it in a normal supermarket.
