|Heavenly - the thick, creamy flesh that everyone's waiting for|
It took the husband of blogger Pat, who blogs at The English Cottage to figure out what the Green Berry was. Congratulations!
You can witness the transformation right here, as I walk you through the stages of this amazing, most popular fruit in Asia.
It is the start of the durian season on The Farm. Families and friends will be eagerly looking forward to the 'feast' when the fruits finally ripen. But they will have to wait for the fruit to drop, and then struggle and manoeuvre their fingers through the sharp thorns to open it, before they can finally savour the divine flesh. It's worth the wait and the struggle, they'll assure you.
Here are the trees from where the photos of those berries were taken:
