Reliable source for Dragon fruit

I can sometimes get this delicious and healthy fruit at Loblaws Jean Talon but not always. Ditto Mile End fruiterie. Pa Parc very occasionally carries it.
Does anyone know a store that ALWAYS has it, either downtown or Mile End would be great.

Thanks.

    I never really look for dragon fruit specifically, so I don't know if they ALWAYS have it, but I'd suggest Chinatown grocery stores (G&D in Swatow building, KV on St. Laurent just above la Gauchetierre, some of the smaller ones on east side of St. Laurent like PAP PAP (fruit&veg) or HENG HENG).
    They SEEM to always have them...

      I'm sure I've noticed them at Chez Louis @ JTM.

        Ditto. I've seen them at Chez Louis every time I've gone.

      Dragon fruit can be found pretty easily at Asian supermarkets. Although I have no idea if its good or not. All the dragon fruit I've ever bought tasted like nothing.

        It's sort of a very firm protected Kiwish type experience. Texture is amazing. Really other than berries and the orange, texture and subtle flavour are the norm for most fruits.

        For the freshest ones, I would probably listen to Porker and look around Chinatown.

        For downtown, they always seem to have some when I go to the new Adonis (but they sometimes look a bit tired).
