does anyone know what Chinese yellow fruit(黄皮果)is called in english and if it can be bought in America.My wife brought some with her in March, but is now out and wants her parents to ship her some from China.I think it is just a dried plum, but my wife disagrees.I know this isn't a visa issue, but it is a living with a chinese wife issue. By the way, we got married May 6,2011 and found out she is pregnant on June 3,2011.

黄皮果 (huáng ​pí guǒ) in english is wampee, I think.

Thanks for all the replies. I know it is a little thing, but when a woman is pregnant, she wants what she wants and doesn't like to be told she cann't have something, just because I don't know what it is.I have been a clueless bachelor for 55 years.I heard of morning sickness, but I didn't realize it lasted all day, and I didn't realize that pregnant woman were cold all the time, even when its 90 degrees out.She won't allow the air conditioner and I am burning up.But isn't it wonderful to be part of the start of a new life.

is also called loquat - can find them canned in syrup at most asian stores.

SOME HAVE FRESH, as well.

texture is similar to lychee, but not as sweet as lychee.

Portland has HUGE Chinese community, if you guys can spend long weekend there, I'm thinking can get all you need without worrying about online and shipping.

Here's a good site for starters - http://www.pdxchinatown.org/

Pregnancy has different impact on women, especially in the first three months! It is very natural!! Get what she wants to eat! In China, pregnant women's eating habits sometimes are used to predict the gender of the baby. However I have no knowledge about the flavor of yellow fruit. When she is happy, then the baby is growing happily.

Congrats on the "impeding tax credit"! ^_^ As far as the fruit goes, you will have to source it locally and since she likes dried that makes it easier. If she doesn't like what she finds locally her parents may be able to ship it, but the USDA will look for and confiscate any seed bearing products. We had this trouble with hotpot dressing, it is hit or miss on having the packages taken. I have colleagues at the university who go home often and they usually act as my mule for hard to find items and the awesome deals we find on TaoBao. Good luck with everything! :thumbs:
