Fresh mangosteens available on Canal Street and Mulberry [moved from What's my Craving board]

While living in the Philippines almost twenty years ago, I encountered the mangosteen. Normally impossible to find in the U.S.--I understand they may even be illegal to import--the illusive mangosteen is perhaps the most delightful fruit known to creation. I have wandered many years without savoring the sweet joy of their snow white flesh, but today I struck gold. The fruit woman on the SE corner of Canal and Mulberry has this forbidden fruit. They don't come cheap at $9 per pound, can you really put a price on a little piece of heaven?
