Where to find salak, mamoncillo (and other exotic fruit) in LA?

mcmachete | Apr 12, 2008 03:07 AM

Anyone have any ideas where I can find fruits like salak (snake fruit), mangostan, breadfruit, cherimoya, durian, rambutan, zapote, cloudberries, dragon fruit, feijoa, jackfruit...

I'd also love to find some mamoncillo. They were sold in every street corner in Miami (well, Hialeah and Little Havana anyway). I also miss some good mamey and papaya and guanabana and guava and tamarindo.

And I'd love to find some Florida (or Caribbean) avocados. The tiny black things out here don't comapre IMO.

I'm sure many are too perishable to export, and there are seasonal considerations, but you never know...
