cheap fruit in chinatown

pinstripeprincess | Nov 16, 2007 06:40 AM

i'm not exactly sure why, but the fruit in chinatown (spadina ave) is ridiculously cheap!

guava's for just over a dollar each, dragonfruit for $1.50 each or 4 for $5, persimmons at 9 for $3....

i haven't dug into the dragonfruit yet but it shows no blemishes and quite a bit of promise. the persimmons are as good as they usually are and fairly large. anyone run into more tasty cheap fruit there?

and for anyone who hasn't, i suggest dropping by...

there've also been some california strawberries at various farmer type markets that are selling for $1 per big container. they're super sweet and full of strawberry goodness. i found mine during a trip to k-w... anyone seen them downtown? i've heard of some up in the woodbridge area. the only problem i'm finding is there's at least one grossly moldy one in the bunch and they last about a week only.
