Montoso Gardens used to sell Cacao.

Not sure if they're open or not, but it might be worth checking to see.

can try the nursery in Cajo RRoja that also sell's fruit. TARS is worth a visit.
forum search for the tropical fruit trumpers that used to do an annual group trip and post good  write ups , can get some leads.

Panoramic fruit company in Mayaguez sells mangosteen, durian, longan, langsat, rambutan and pulasan. They may have others as well, you can call and ask. Although I think the season is over for most of these now.

https://www.panoramicfruit.com/

Jardines Eneida is the tropical fruit nursery in Cabo Rojo. They used to sell fruit as well, but Iím not sure they still do.

Does Panoramic have a storefront or how do you reach them?
I was staying in Mayaguez , I called and left messages and never heard back from them.

They can be hard to get a hold of. Call during the weekday and in the morning - that is when weíve had the best luck.  If you speak Spanish, you can call Jose (787) 514-6749. Heís the head guy there.
There isnít a storefront that I am aware of; you have to drive up the mountain to the farm, which doesnít have a sign.  But itís at km 13.6 on PR105.
