Fruterias (fruit stands) in the Mission

Dear Chowhounds:

What fruterias would you recommend on the basis of best selection and quality of fruits in the Mission? I'm looking for fresh fruit not juice.

I'm interested in guava, nance, cherimoya, guanabana, sugar apple, atemoya, and anything else I haven't tried yet. After paging through The Fruit Hunters (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/01/boo...) I'm planning to do a strange fruit picnic and would like to know which fruit stands you would recommend. Are some stands more focused on Central American fruits and others on Mexican fruits?

A couple of places I'm planning to hit:
Casa Lucas Market
El Chico Produce Market #4
La Loma Produce No 8

Any thoughts?
