Wouldn't it be fun to grow more fruit?
Alas, not in coastal gardens. Not yet, anyway.
You can find all kinds of unusual fruit in San Francisco's ethnic markets. Someone brought a durian to my plant ID class. It was rank and I couldn't bring myself to taste it. My friend who went to a Catholic school in Vietnam said the nuns made the students kneel on durians when they misbehaved. Ouch!
