Where can I find fresh betel nuts in San Francisco?

I'm curious about betel nuts and would like to try some. I've seen betel leaf at the New May Wah, but not betel nuts. Can I find them in SF?

        Please do let us know what works out for you. I've seen dried betel nut, but not fresh. Also bear in mind that betel leaf and betel nut come from completely different plants.
