If you don’t know what they are, don’t ask: These are the real things, though irradiated, from the garden of the unbelievably delicious. We used to buy them for 20 RMB a pound ($2.50, and that was the local “ben di ren” price”) in China, but these we had to shell out $8.99 a pound in San Gabriel. The skins had the perfect give, the insides, the classic cloud-like texture and taste. This weekend’s mission: going back for more.
