In praise of Arax fruit

StriperGuy | May 12, 2011 06:50 AM

I know, I know, I'm a broken record.

On any given visit, Arax will consistently, all year long, have at least one or two fruit that blow my mind. Recent examples: tiny French plums, Haitian Mangos, Fragrant pears, Kiwi Berries.

I thought I knew fragrant pears. Had them a hundred times. The ones I had last week were the best I have ever eaten.

Here's the VERY important secret:

Ask the BIG young guy, one of the three siblings now running the place, which fruit he recommends. Heck, he's at the Chelsea produce market every morning at 4:00am tasting and buying the stuff, then driving the truck on home. He has never failed me. If he says its GOOD, it's better than good.

Whew, glad I got that off my chest.
