The Durian fruit is so stinky it isn't allowed on public transit in #Indonesia. Would you eat it?

The durian fruit is so foul smelling that it’s banned from being eaten in public and on public transit. Indonesian public transit has completely banned the durian fruit even if it’s kept with its husk on A 2012 Indonesian flight was delayed when passengers demanded to be let off the plane to escape the stink of the fruit The smell has been described as “turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock.
