Hello Mike, do you ship your plants to CA? I remember seeing somewhere before you don't ship, but just wanna check again. Hopefully you can ship in the future. If you do, I would definitely like a wampee and something else from you. Thanks, Michael

They don't ship and as discussed in a Wampee thread in another section of the forum, Wampee cannot be shipped from Florida to Cali as it is in the citrus family.

I'm guessing that should be "chcken tongue" and that refers to the seeds being aborted seeds, so very small and wrinkled.

No, per Julia Morton it is actually Chicken Heart.

When Ed told me about the chicken heart, I said the same thing!
It must have a small seed!

Nope!  looks like a chickens guts! and taste sweet like the still beating heart of a cockerel.
