Exotic fruit available locally?

KosherVeg Sep 1, 2010 02:28 PM

I know that the subject sounds like a bit of a contradiction, but short of ordering online, is there anywhere locally where one can buy exotic fruit? (Rambutan, mangosteen, dragon fruit, jujube, etc)

    I have seen rambutan, mangosteen, lychee, dragon fruit, etc at Dragon Star just off of Dale Street in Saint Paul.

      I've seen all of those save mangosteen at Kowalski's on Grand. I've seen mangosteen at Cub in the Midway.

        Grand Ave Kowalski's has dragon fruit and mangosteen at the moment, $6 / lb and $4 / each.
