I guess I had to gave some durian at some time. Nowadays you can buy them opened for you. More than enough for a taste. Like they say you either live it or hate it, nothing in between. Elephants love them so they must be good! Then again it is better to spend good money on one quality Durian rather than eat the low grade stuff. Try the ganja, d2 or d3 or black gold (oo kim). To just try one type does not do it justice.
After having a durian feast be prepared to have a hot sweaty night. It is very rich and considered a "heaty" fruit causing you to sweat it out.
