cut-rate prices for two of my favorite spring
fruits. Strawberries in the market today are
going for anywhere from $3 to $5 or $6 for a
three-pack (except for Harries Berries, which as
always seems to be able to find buyers at $10 a
three-pack for its coveted Seascape berries).
Large, well-shaped cherimoyas, unlike these, are going
for $3 a pound but the bag of these small misshapen
ones comes out at about $1 a pound. These cheap
berries taste fine. It'll be several days before
the cherimoyas are ready to try.
cherimoyas: $2.50/bag of six
