At the southeastern corner of 8th St and Franklin in Oakland Chinatown, there's this fruit stand that sells the most expensive stuff in Chinatown. They now have the super-rare lychees from Hawaii, at $6.29/lb., slightly less if you buy in bulk. They are plump, juicy, and sweet--light years better than the mediocre ones we get here from Thailand, China, or Mexico. They also carry organic cherries at $4/lb., when everyone else in the neighborhood is selling Bing or Rainier at $1-2/lb.
