Rogue Valley Native Goes Nuts For Fruit

truthseeker08/Pixabay
Looks odd, tastes good.

Have you met durian?  You'd probably remember if you did. 

Durian is not a person, but a fruit.  In fact, the King of Fruits, says Lindsay Gasik.  She's a Rogue Valley native now living and working in Thailand and Malaysia, giving tours of the places where durian grow. 

And she blogs about this spiky-looking but tasty fruit, too.  Lindsay visits to talk about her first experience with durian, and why the fruit became a focus of her life.
