The other day I bought a SourSap, (aka Guanabana), in the market and made a really nice smoothie.  These are great fruits, but a hassle to peel and to separate the pulp from the toxic seeds.  Lo and behold, an Internet search resulted in a packing company in Nayarit that will hotshot to you the next day 1lb packets of Guanabana, Guayaba, JackFruit and Passion Fruit, all fresh and export quality.   I ordered a 1000 peso box of about 25 mixed packets and they are wonderful.  One of the specialty stores here, like Panchos, Superlake, or the organic market, would likely have a hit carrying these.

Check them out.   The company is called Pures y Derivados de Nayarit and the website is here:   http://www.lasguavasauce.com/index.html   .   Felipe is the contact:  pdn7@ymail.com

Fruit pulp such as this is readily available in most Mexican markets.  I've seen it at the Mercado de Abastos in Guadalajara, at the Mercado de Jamaica in Mexico City, and at the Mercado Hidalgo in Tijuana.  I bet a vendor at the Ajijic Wednesday tianguis would gladly schlep some to Lakeside, and for far less money than shipping it from Nayarit.

Jackfruit,  haven't had that for years. The canned stuff is expensive and tasteless. The trouble is I would want to make the Jamaican dish with salt cod, which is very hard to get. Maybe Mercado Libre - what is the popular Mexican name for salt cod?
