Cooking Effects
Extra Hearts

Hearty Durians are found growing on trees in wooded areas of the Faron Grasslands. They're purchasable from the travelling merchant, Chumin, as well Lorn's Fruit Stand in Gerudo Town. Red Hinox have the potential to drop Hearty Durians when killed.

Hearty Durians can be eaten raw to restore three Hearts, but they can also be roasted by direct flames to become Roasted Hearty Durians. If one or more are cooked into a dish in a Cooking Pot, they will temporarily increase Link's maximum Hearts. At the Kochi Dye Shop, Hearty Durians are one of the ingredients that can be used to make Light Yellow Dye.

Hearty Durians, as well as other fruits, can be used in a Cooking Pot to make Fruit Pie, Fruitcake, Honeyed Fruits, Simmered Fruit, Steamed Fruit, Fruit and Mushroom Mix, and Copious Simmered Fruit.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Hearty Durians can be bought from Saezuri for 36 Rupees and from Dayfah for 60 Rupees and sold at every service for 15 Rupees. They can also sometimes be obtained by destroying Wooden Boxes. Hearty Durians are a required ingredient in cooking Honeyed Fruits and Dubious Food.

Trivia

  • The Hearty Durian's nickname, "king of fruits", is a reference to real-life Durian, which have the same nickname.
  • Eating Hearty Durians whilst drinking alcoholic beverages is ill-advised, although reasons why are not provided in-game. This is another trend it shares with the real-life durian.
