Hi all-

I was recently in Hawaii and am missing the Maui Gold pineapples out there. Does anyone know of a place that sells good, very sweet, pineapples. Perhaps even the MGs? They're something like $10 a pineapple to mail order from the company and I'd like to keep it under that.

There are plenty of little bodegas in my area (Wash Hts) but the pineapples have always been very tart.

    Have you checked out the Manhattan Fruit Exchange at the Chelsea Market?

      In chinatown under the manhattan bridge there is a fruit market (not sure when and where, but i remember going to it). They have many imported fruits there, and for a while you could get mangosteens there when they were illegal in new york.
