Durian ‘Isu’

I did blog about the King of Fruit – Durian in my previous post and that was the common species of durian.

During my recent field research trip to the Ulu Baram, I was lucky to pampered myself with my favourite durian of all durian – Durian ‘Isu’. Durian ‘Isu’ is what it is locally known here in Sarawak and it is known as ‘Lian Belak’ in Uma’ Pawa’ Kenyah dialect. 🙂

this is wild durian 'isu' founded by a Penan porter on our way back to 'base camp'

This particular durian has sharper thorns and smaller size (the biggest size would be as big as a dodgeball) as compared to the common species of durian. The edible fresh is very yellowish in colour, very creamy, dark brown seed and it had a very distinctive strong odour too.

who say you can't camwhore in the forest? well, i can. ;p

I had great time endulging myself with durian ‘isu’ throughout my stay in the Ulu Baram forest. I know I may not be able to have it as often as I want to but what matter the most is the memories I had and able to share it with others. 😉
