I'm looking for edible chrysanthemum to use in stir fries. I think it's also called tong-ho in Chinese and shinguku in Japanese. Has anybody seen this in Boston area Asian groceries?

    I have seen them very regularly at H-Mart, and from time to time at Russo's.

      They are definitely sold in Boston area Chinese markets on occasion, though not all the time. I can't say I've seen them the last few months.

        Thanks for the tips! I'll try to brave the crowds in H-Mart then.

          Ebisuya should have it when they open.

            saw this very belatedly, but if you haven't found tang-hao yet, kam man in quincy almost always has it, ditto c-mart and ming's in chinatown. i know i've seen it at ming's within the past two weeks, and kam man last time i was there, which admittedly was a month or more ago.

              I have bought it in Chung Wah Hong Market in Chinatown (55 Beach Street).
