Jessica Chastain stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night with a special smelly gift.

The Huntsman: Winter's War star brought the late-night host a durian, the notoriously stinky fruit that's popular in Asia.

"They call it the 'bleu cheese of fruit,'" she explained. "I love it though! It tastes like onions, garlic, avocado and pineapple in a custard."

"Is this a prank?" Kimmel asked in disbelief. Upon cutting it open, he noted, "It's vile!"

"It kind of smells like a garbage can, right?" said Chastain, who shared how she snuck it into her Thailand hotel. "The first bite, you're like, 'I'm not sure if I like this.' And the second one, it's amazing."

So what did Kimmel think of the fruit? "It's on the line between horrible and delicious. It's right on that line. … I feel like throwing up a little bit right now."
