5 lb box of fresh rambutan = $35
4.5 lb fresh durian = $20
5.5 lbs of White cherimoyas = $16

That should keep you busy for a while. I've seen the whole frozen durian around....but not the other stuff. I'm going to try to stop in to the market here to see what they have a available. Enjoy! And thanks for teasing us all.

Fresh durian?? I didn't think that was allowed into the country just yet. Sure be nice to have access to stuff like durian and rambutan here!

Great pics, I'm really getting hungry now! Not exactly sure when Mangosteen season is but we just started getting the fresh stuff in last week.

We also have fresh Durian here in San Diego at many of the asian markets like 99 Ranch. I wonder if it has been irradiated?

Must be nice to be able to go to the market and just pick up fruit like that. Nope, not jealous at all...

Where did you purchase the fresh Rambutan? I live in Los Angeles relatively close to you.

RE: fruit pics

I was by fortune cookie the other day, if its the same one, off of forest hill??? They said mangosteen around late july or august. Will check back before then though... just in case...

I love Rambutan and now cherimoyas too! Those are great prices as well! I'll be visiting this summer, where in SoCal did you find these fruits?!

Also try this area in Westminster, on the southwest corner of Magnolia and Bolsa. There is a supermarket called ABC Supermarket, but that's not where I got it. However, the whole plaza has various small mom and pop stores that sells fresh fruit and flowers. It almost has a farmer's market / storefront feel of southeast asia. Unfortunately i dont know the names of the stores...

Durians here aren't irradiated. The mangosteens are definitely and possibly the rambutan.

Richard:

That durian was frozen, wasn't it?

Wow Eggo,
that is a wonderful find! Why have I been spending money on plants when it is the fruit that I really want? Another excuse to drive to LA.

dang you for posting, :)

I saw the fresh durian at one of Houston, Tx supermarket too. They are fresh and never frozen before. I was about to buy one but it cost like $35 just for one. It was like $4.99 per lb. So I got the jackfruit instead. The frozen one is not that bad if you pick the right one. It still creamy and sweet.
