Like Monster Meat, raw Durian damages health and sanity, and also affects 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.
Webber will still take the health and sanity penalties from eating Durians.
Wurt can eat Durians without the Sanity penalty and gain extra 23.25 hunger from them, which makes them great for her to eat.
Wurt benefits slightly more from Pumpkins despite the extra benefit from Durians. While Durians fill Wurt by 48.25 , a Pumpkin can fill Wurt by 50 , having some in a crop plot for emergency rations is a good idea.
However, if a Wurt were to be growing specific advanced Crop Seeds, the player should rather grow Dragonfruit. As Fruit Crockpot Meals receive her benefits to hunger, making a single Dragonpie worth 100 and 54 from each crop grown for the addition of 3 Twigs.
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.
Durian is a popular fruit in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
Using Durian to produce Monster Lasagna makes it theoretically possible to feed Wigfrid without meat.
