Like Monster Meat, Durian damages health instead of restoring, which also affects its Crock Pot recipes. It can be used as a Fruit/any filler in Crock Pot recipe with no toxic effects, but using more than 1 Durian in a Crock Pot recipe could result in Monster Lasagna unless the recipe contains Twigs or has higher priority.
Extra Smelly Durian is a Fruit Food item made by Cooking a Durian. This cooked version does not damage health but one will still lose Sanity. It can be used as an ingredient in several Crock Pot recipes.
Like Cooked Monster Meat and the uncooked Durian, it will produce Monster Lasagna if more than one is included in the Crock Pot. It can be used in place of the uncooked Durian for all Crock Pot recipes.
Although Webber can eat Monster Meat without any penalties, he still suffers the same penalties as other characters when eating Durians, so it is not advised to eat Durians raw or cooked unless the player wants to lower their Sanity.
Wurt can eat Durians without penalty and gain extra 15 hunger from them, which makes them great for her to eat.
However, Wurt benefits more from Pumpkins despite the extra benefit from Durians. While Durians fill Wurt by 40 , a Hot Pumpkin can fill Wurt by 50 , and 10.6 . If a Wurt were to live on a diet of crop plants, the player should rather use Pumpkins than Durian.
The sanity loss, character quotes, and the name "Extra Smelly" refer to the foul odor that the real-life fruit can emit. Not all varieties of Durian have a foul odor, but it can be so pungent and linger for so long that Durians have been banned in some establishments and public transport. Known colloquially as the 'King of Fruits', Durian is a creamy soft fruit that people either love or hate.
Durian is a popular fruit in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
Using Durian to produce Monster Lasagna makes it theoretically possible to feed Wigfrid without meat.
