It looks like a devil but smells like hell. And it tastes like heaven. That is how the Chennai people refer to Durian fruit. The round and spiky import from Southeast Asia is a sell out in the city. "Durian fruits have good medical benefits and are rare to get. It is also very costly in the market. But I bought it because it has good medicinal benefit for health," says Vinayakam, a buyer.
