I purchased 5 of these this year , They are very hard to find . I hope and pray that they come back next year otherwise I have made a very expensive mistake. This will be my first year growing them but I have wanted them for years, Ever since I saw my friend Elissas plant growing in San Antonio . She called it a jammy mouth . I am only about an hour and a half away from San Antonio so I hope it will make it here through the winter as it does there. I will post details and pictures as the season progresses.
