Fresh Jackfruit

  • c

In response to the post from several weeks ago, Hawaii Supermarket, SE corner of Valley Bl. & Del Mar in San Gabriel, has fresh jackfruit at $3.99/lb. Available whole or quartered.

      You do realize that the original post is nearly ... wait for it now ... 10 years old.

      If those jackfruit Chandavkl saw were fresh, I'm presuming they no longer are.

      1. re: ipsedixit

        I am assuming that like most supermarkets they regularly or seasonally receive new shipments of fruit. So if Hawaii Supermarket had it 10 years ago, I assume like most threads on Chowhound and Chowhound itself as good guidance for today. I wanted to expand the info. I didn't know anyone carried fresh jackfruit so this is good info as it is.

        edit: especially since it was an April post.

          Ipsedixit. Well said. I often wonder at the responses to old posts and how people actually find the old posts in the first place.

            FYI, Chowhound search feature at the top of the page next to the massive CHOWHOUND headline. You type food or restaurant that you are interested in. I typed "fresh jackfruit", and lo and behold I found this old post. I hope this helps clear your wondering, SIMIHOUND. Thanks Chowhounds for the scent. I am going to try 99 Ranch because its current definite sightings.

          Try Tien Phat Produce

          Westminster, CA 92683

          Or one of the two fruit places at Bolsa & Magnolia.

            wait a few months and it'll be around $1/lb in any market in Little Saigon
