Transcript

It may look delicious but this fruit's pungent smell makes it an acquired taste.
Durians, the so-called "king of fruits", are something of a national obsession in Singapore.
And 2015 is shaping up to be a very good year for durian lovers, with a bumper crop in neighbouring Malaysia.
That means prices are coming down and sales are going up – much to the delight of buyers and sellers alike.

Vocabulary

pungent
strong and unpleasant taste or smell

an acquired taste
something you start liking the more you try it

is shaping up
developing into

bumper crop
larger amount of fruit than normally grows

delight
great pleasure/ happiness
