Where to Find Pinata Apples in 2010/2011?

Pinata Apple Last year I was introduced on one of the newest, best tasting apples on the market – the Pinata. It’s a unique apple with a great crunch and a tropical like flavor. Check out my full review of it from last year. It hits the market place shortly before or after the New Year. This year I am going to be tracking where you can find this great apple. I will be adding more locations as time goes on. All the stores listed are expected to have the apple sometime between December and March. If I have specific information (such as price) I will add a date.
