Hey Jen! I bought a really juicy pineapple, paw paws, some mangoes and custard apples. There were lots of bananas as well, water melons, star fruit, paw paws. Apparently there are over 100 different varieties of fruit on the island, including 20 different kinds of mangoes which is far out. I don't really know why this isn't a fruity favourite. I'm paying 120eur a month for a really nice room, in a really rad house sharing with affluent islam people. I have lots of privacy and it's close to everything. I dig the architecture and it's very peaceful because the roads are still small from way back when. I also rented a scooter to go exploring the rest of the island and do fruit shopping, though a bicycle would be just as good. I'll watch out for the Durian!

I just arrived in Zanzibar, it has a really good fruit market in the stone town for quite well priced. This could be my fruit paradise for the next few months :)

Hi all. Anyone in Thailand Dec 17 - Jan 17th? I'll be there and planning to head to the north - typical fruity spots of Chang Mai, Chantaburi etc. No plans but want to meet up with anyone who appreciates the raw food lifestyle, getting up early and active as me! Anyone and everyone from anywhere! Love to connect with vegans from around the world. Love, Emily from Perth Australia.

Hey guys,

The Big Island on HI was amazing for fruit of course.

I was also pretty impressed by the quality of the fruit in the San Diego, CA area recently.. even "regular" stuff like oranges and grapes and melons were just really yummy and sweet (the locally grown ones I mean)

South Florida is good if you like mameys and odd varieties of mangoes.. I never found a mango I was crazy about there which is weird because I LOVE mangoes. They also have good sapotes of various types.. I just don't care for them that much.

Seattle, WA  actually has some decent fruit. You can buy amazing orange flesh Temptation melons in the early summer and delicious cherries in the summer and the International District's Asian stores have a killer selection of tropical fruit most of the year.
