30 Bananas a Day!

So....Where the FUNK Do You Find a JackFruit??? (Durian)

So as long as I've been raw (or partially so) I've heard of the elusive Durian aka "Jack Fruit" - to me it's been like the legendary Bigfoot, Nessie, or Jabberwocky.... I've seen it in pictures, heard about it's special powers, but yet I have NOT experienced it first-hand. I don't live in the tropics, and trying to find it on the East Coast is like well...trying to find a Sasquatch in a haystack. ...albeit a super-tiny Sas. ;P

I've even tried to find it for purchase online, and....NADA! - and you can buy ANYTHING online!! The closest I've got to the elusive Durian is some kind of Thai Durian hard candy via Google Shopping. Although I'm sure it's super-tasty, somehow I don't think it's going to give me superpowers like (maybe!) the real thing can.

So... can anyone out there who maybe doesn't live in Fiji or Sri Lanka tell me how can I find a few or two Durian...? And since my name is Jack - does that mean I can get a special discount based on a possible copyright infringement lawsuit that most certainly would be ruled in my favor?

Yeah, Durian and Jackfruit are very different. Jackfruit tends to be more expensive in the US and Canada at least. Jackfruit is really exciting. When eating it with your hands, it's like...

Hi, I live in VA and certain stores carry great versions of durian and other stores carry great versions of jackfruit! I've only found them in International grocery stores. If you do find jackfruit, and see that certain ones are very orange in color (if it's cut open and you can see the pods of fruit flesh), they are very aromatic and very sweet and have the most wonderful texture! I've liked durian best where it's sold not so frozen, just chilled. Yummmmyy. Someday you will come across it. It's just the way it happens for fruit eaters.

Your best bet will be Asian markets. You will most likely be able to find both Durian and Jackfruit there. I live in a very Polish area of Chicago and luckily for me there is one Asian supermarket that sells both. If you don't have Asian markets in your town, surely you must have some kind of "Chinatown" where you could find them as well.

p.s. - sooo...somebody informed me that Durian and Jackfruit are in fact two different fruits! I did not know that. Anyway - I'd love to experience either one or both...
