View Full Version : Where to purchase durian & young coconut?
08-12-2004, 12:02 PM
Can't find young coco's or durian in my area (near Boise, Idaho). Does anyone know where to buy online, and hopefully not at terribly high prices?
Are there any asian markets near you?
you can find both coconuts and durians there.

when I was going nuts looking for young coconuts, I found Amazon selling them! But they were $25 plus shipping for 3! I finally started calling asian markets in my area (Des Moines) and they all carried them. Some one told me Whole Foods would ship them...I never checked it out but I was close to calling them. YCs are my favorite food in the whole world. I asked the asian market I go to for Durien...she said she refused to sell them because they were too stinky. I asked about frozen ones, she'd never heard of them frozen.

I thought Durians only came frozen? I've never seen or heard of a 'fresh' one?

Thanks, everyone! Hadn't thought to check for Asian markets. Don't think we have one in my small town, but probably do in Boise. :D

A friend and I asked the co-op to order us a case of young coconuts and we are splitting it.

Love to all,
