    Phan Farms at the Berkeley and SF Civic Center farmers markets has them in season.

    So does Berkeley Bowl. The one I bought a few years ago was virtually flavorless.

      I bought one at the Bowl a couple of weeks ago. Cost = $6. Pretty disappointing at any price.

        I've read that the less common (here) red-fleshed varieties have more flavor.

        I tasted some dried at Trader Joe's. They looked liked little deflated basketballs and had no taste. Did not buy.

          I've seen it at Monterey Market and I recently saw some at Ranch 99 in El Cerrito. I agree, the ones with the red flesh insides are tastier than the ones with white fleshed insides. But how to tell them apart without cutting into one, I do not know.
