I would like to describe the plant called Fat Choy, which is a plant grown in the desert in the northern part of China. The first time I met with this plant was on the TV, a program introducing plants in desert. You may link up Fat Choy with the famous Chinese Greetings "Kung Hei Fat Choy" when you hear about it at the first time. Yes, they are pronounced in the same way in Chinese. It is black in color and looks like vermicelli when it is soaked with water. Fat Choy is used in some Chinese dishes that are quite popular during Chinese New Year. People like to have some dishes that have symbolic meaning as richness and wealth at the beginning of a year. Thanks to its name pronouncing similar to Kung Hei Fat Choi, Fat Choi is always in great demand. Interesting enough, nutritionists examine Fat Choy and confirm that it has no nutrition value at all, although they are loved by Chinese people.
I personally like the plant. But I don't like to have it in my dishes. Fat Choy is important to people in the northern part of China, not because of its name relating to wealth, but its unique function in the wild to anchor the sand in desert. Over-harvesting has already brought a disastrous consequence of worsening the desertification in the northern part of China. What makes things worse is that Fat Choy is a wild plant and planting it artificially is difficult. It only grows in the desert with some other specific environmental factors. Fat Choy is now in danger of extinction. I personally like this plant very much because of its strong characteristic, uniqueness and usefulness. And I would like to take any chance to advocate the protection of Fay Choy within and outside of China. It is already good to greet your friend with "Kung Hei Fat Choy" during Chinese New Year and you can leave Fay Choy in the desert.
