In search of Mangosteens...

k

I'm in search of Mangosteens and wanted to know where I might find (preferably) fresh ones in SF (ideally) or the Bay Area. Can I locate them fresh this time of year (since they are imported)?
If not, does anyone know where I might find them frozen?

THANKS!

    on Sunday I noticed that the shop at 772 Jackson St in SF Chinatown had mangosteen and rambutan. I didn't buy any so can't speak to the actual quality or price. But they both looked really good and I think they were fresh.

    Here's an old post on this shop.

            I saw them at the Ranch 99 in Mt View last week, ~$6/lb

              They are available from the tropical fruit seller at the Alemany market in San Francisco - they have a farm in southern cal. (so no, they're not all imported).
