Unfortunately, none that far north. If you were to stop by, I have lots of tree ripened papaya and carambola :-)

Hi Josh.
Do you have any Wegmans near you? I have been successfull there. About 2 weeks ago, I found rambutans there. They were fresh and very tasty. This past weekend I found cherimoyas at a diffrent Wegmans store. Some were ripe all ready while others were still pretty hard. I ate my first fruit thinking that they were decent but I have had much better fruits from Cherimoya.com

I had never had the rambutan fruits before so yes, I think they were worth the cost. Those were 9.99 a pound. The cherimoya I wouldn't buy again. The fruits were considerbly smaller and the flavor on a scale of 1-10 was about a 6.

Also, if you have any oriental markets, or hispanic markets you may be able to find them there.

I feel your pain. I still have yet to try many tropical fruits. Hopefully I will be in Florida for 4th of July and I will be able to try some more than.

Yeah I got to see if there is one near me, Ive heard of them. I have an asian market near me for frozen durian and jackfruit. My ultimate goal is to make it to Thailand-the fruit capital of the world
