Where do I get Cherimoya now?

cookiepoot May 16, 2010 01:58 AM

I've been to Whole Foods in Palo Alto and Country Farm Produce in Sunnyvale, and neither of them had Cherimoya (one woman told me they stopped receiving them in March).

I can't believe they stopped receiving them in March -- anywhere in my area that I can find Cherimoya?

    Just saw a huge stack at the Lion supermarket in Fremont (Mowry exit)

      there's a woman who sells tropical fruits (dragonfruit, etc.) and avocados at the sunday morning farmer's market on california ave. in palo alto that often has cherimoya. not sure if she's still selling? also saw it relatively recently at the alemany farmer's market in san francisco.

        These people (Watsonville) sell them at various local farmers markets, but they show the season ending in April:


        You might contact these people for local retailers, they say their season (in Santa Barbara) is roughly January-June:

          Brokaw should be at the farmers market in Berkeley today. Getting toward the usual end of their season.

          Sigona's in Redwood City carries them when they're in season. They come from Santa Barbera.

            I just went to Sigona's in Palo Alto and got the last Cherimoya of the season. Thanks for the tip!

              Did you try the one in Redwood City, I have found that they have more produce than the one in Palo Alto.

            If they're to be had, Berkeley Bowl or Monterey Market in Berkeley will have them.
