Which is the stinkiest fruit?

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Some people say the durian smells like a skunk, stinky socks, or rotten onions. The smell helps jungle animals find the fruit to eat.  Durian smells so bad it isn’t allowed on buses or in hotels in some countries. But it tastes better than it smells.

Durian has lots of vitamin C, which is good for your teeth and gums. No durian at the store? Try oranges or strawberries. They have vitamin C, too.
