    You could always scavenge them yourself - the trees are everywhere in South Florida. Once you know what they look like, they're impossible to mistake for anything else.

    *** Edit *** google tells me there are over 600 species of Panadus, and the tree-like ones I'm familiar with might not be the same as what's commonly used for cooking. At least I can say from experience that they won't kill you...
