Mangosteens in Philadelphia
Is there anyone with a secret or not so secret source for fresh mangosteens from south east asia in philadelphia willing to share?
In March, I got mangosteen at Sue's (on 18th between Sansom and Chestnut) for $17.50 a pound. However, I haven't seen them there recently.
Sometimes I find mangosteens at Iovine's or OK Lee Produce, both at Reading Terminal Market. I have also found mangosteens at H Mart, in Upper Darby and the Asian produce-only stores in Chinatown. I haven't found any places that have them all the time. It's not illegal to carry them, just difficult.
The Chinese produce/grocery place on 10th st next to the fire station had Mangosteens last week.
