I know. The thick Durian peels can be processed to paper. There are several tutorials about durian peel paper making on the net. I also read about the guy who won award by presenting this kind.
I am curious. Are there any edible products out of durian peels? Maybe it can be: 1) drench with sugar – as sweet delicacy, 2) slice and fry to crispiness – as cracklings, 3) a wine – add some sugar and ferment, 4) a medicinal drug to cure simple to chronic diseases, and…?
Maybe a development of breed with reasonably thin peel is more justifiable. A breed with less pointed thorns too. Consumers want the flesh, not the rind.
