Durian Galore

A visit in Davao is not complete without sampling the local and exotic fruits that is very popular in Davao like mangosteen, pomelo (suha) and of course, durian - the king of Davao fruits! It wouldn't be complete to taste the famous of them all - the durian fruit. And just a cautioned, clip your nose to taste its heavenly sweet pulp or you'll smell its hellish odor! Durian is so famous in Davao that it becomes a national or local icon of Davao and become signiture in their desserts like Durian flavored ice cream, candy, cakes and all other sweets. So on our last day there, we bought these fruits for pasalubong at the famed fruit market, Magsasay Fruit Vendor Association market. While my mom selects the best of these fruits, I get this souvenir shot of tumpok ng durian (stack of durian) that is certainly a Durian galore.
