Why are durians so spiky?



  1. 0 Votes

    The durian (whose name in Malasian means thorny) has a thick, barbed husk in order to keep animals out until the seeds are ready to germinate.  When the fruit is ripe, the husk will split, and animals will consume the fruit, dispersing the seeds as they do so.
