A type of durian that is not for the beginner. With every mouthful, you get a slight hint of raw onions and when you wash it down with water, there's a very tiny bit of wasabi sting to the tongue. It is also sweet with a nice layer of membrane close to the seed itself.
小红榴：莲俗称 “红肉仔”，也叫 “细刺红肉”，是用坤宝红肉的种子培植出来的卓越品种。虽然它的外表娇小，但它拥有实厚的果肉。果肉金黄色，s清甜润滑，味道香浓。一般上越名种的榴莲，越不容易种植，要有很好的管理技术，才能生產出色、香、味俱全的名种榴莲，味道甘甜浓郁，让人迷恋.
