Chinatown fruit report [Old]

buttertart | Sep 23, 2009 10:29 AM

Last weekend saw the following notable "exotic" fruits on the stands: guava, rambutan, longan, tiny clementines, and the most exciting - carambolas (shijia in Pinyin). They look somewhat like pinecones (of the greenish color of ancient Chinese patinated bronzes) and taste somewhat like a cross between banana and pineapple. Pounce! (I particularly like the vendor on the east side of Mulberry at Canal. A nice lady and her stuff is always top quality.)
