Chung Chou is a shortened Cantonese phrase which means Caterpillar Fungus when translated translated into English. The fungus takes over the larvae of ghost moths and produces a fruiting body. This can only be found at altitudes above 17,7165 feet. This fungus is classified as a medicinal mushroom, and its use has a long history in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine. These medicinal mushrooms are collected by hand. If the fungus-caterpillar body is still intact, the value is increased exponentially in medicine. Due to its rarity and cost, its use is a symbol of status.
Chung Chou City is one of the largest nutrient specialty store in the United States. They carry an extensive selection of dried seafood, dried mushrooms, ginseng, and other traditional medicinal products.
