Chinatown Fruit Report 2014

jumpingmonk | May 14, 2014 03:01 PM

Well, as promised, this begins the 2014 thread for reporting on fruit in Chinatown (Manhattan or Flushing, plus anywere else something odd shows up).
Only problem is I have nothing to report for today. I saw no particualr fruit of note. Of course, since I am still plying the same route I have been for the last frew months. several areas (like east of Allen) are not currently in my purview, and won't be until the beans change again (that elusive strain of rice beans I so actively seek, the ones that have the non-red adzuki's as an admixture [and which are actually capable of flowering and producing pods this far North] has currently been the one in stock by the scoop at some of the manhattan herb shops, so my route has pretty much been tied to being able to get to all of them until such time as the suppliers change again [sooner or later they always do] that's probably going to change soon though; two of them have already switched and the bin at the third is getting quite low, so that will probably flip when they refill it.) One I am no longer tied, I'll try and wander further afield and see if any of the other areas are more fruit rich.
Oh and the Lian wu seller is either no longer there or no longer has lian wu.
