Durian is called the King of Fruits in Southeast Asia, and here it combines with cheesecake for a very unique dessert. Durian can be found at some oriental or Asian markets.
Durian, a large fruit from Southeast Asia, has a dark green to brown husk studded with prickly thorns concealing pale yellow to red flesh. Some find durian's strong odor offensive, but the reward is its creamy flesh with a nutty, slightly sweet taste.

The durian flavour comes out well! Although my Malaysian wife and her family were quite repelled at the idea of durian in a cheesecake, I thought it tasted not bad at all. Durian is definitely an acquired taste and this is a good way to try it. Mine also didn't turn out quite as yellow as the picture submitted with the recipe. - 27 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
