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.

  1. 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.

    2. 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.

      2. 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).
