Why does durian taste like onion?

Verified Answer
Durians, like papayas, have an enzyme that your body doesn't recognize and the first taste gives you a knee-jerk reaction. Once you eat this, your body assimilates the enzyme and the next time you eat it, you usually like it. First time I ate durians it smelled like onions and rotting produce. ... Like eating custard.
