The key is that it must be a corm - therefore falling into the seed and bulb category of plant material.
At the time I didn't know about the Bananas. Org and I didn't have any American friend interested in farming or plants. Now it's different. I know people like you could help me, Richard.
I'm counting on you to get information about importing procedures. Thanks.
I really don't enjoy smuggling because I also work for the Japanese Government. I'm a bad boy.
Thank you for the information.
