Hi All,

I’m going to be ordering some budwood from UC Riverside In June and I thought I would post here to see if anyone was interested in splitting the order. The buds are $0.75 each plus shipping and you must order 12 of any one variety. That’s more than I need of some of them.

Here is a very preliminary list of varieties I’m looking into ordering, I’ll add more especially if I find someone to split the order with:

VI697 Microcitrus Australasica / Australian Finger Lime


VI127 Cocktail Grapefruit Hybrid


VI033 Frost Owari Satsuma Mandarin


VI156 Encore Mandarin


VI422 Gold Nugget Mandarin


VI001 Kinnow Mandarin


VI589 Bouquet de Fleurs Sour Orange


VI066 Wilking Mandarin


VI454 Mato Buntan Pummelo


VI475 Variegated Calamondin


There is a list of what they have available here:

If there is just one variety you want and you’d like to add it to my order so you don’t have to buy the 36 bud minimum order that would be fine with me. Or if you want to split some of the ones I have listed that would be fine too.

I live in Jamul (Southeast of El Cajon), so the buds would be delivered here and you’d have to come pick them up here. The order deadline is June 12th and the buds will ship around the 24th. I’ve ordered from them in the past and the buds arrived in great shape and took well.

You can e-mail me as or call me at 760-468-2296 if you are interested.

Best regards,

I ve been looking for Italian varieties of lemon trees in California, but did not have a chance to find what I was looking for. I wanted to ask if someone knows by any chance where I can get it in CA

 1)      I’m interested in Sorrento Lemon (“Ovale di Sorrento” or another way of calling same kind “Lemone di Massa” )

2)      My second wish is Amalfi Lemon

 I would be happy to find either one. Both of them have a beautiful oblong shape and they are famous by their exceptional zest smell and taste. California should definitely start growing those kinds of lemons!

 I have been trying to order it directly from Italy, but the Italian groves having problem with US customs’s restrictions about importing plants in a country. So hard to get, but I do not want to give up + already got a huge pot for it and do not want to replace by anything else. Maybe someone know any local growers who may offer it to me? It would be appreciated a lot! Thanks!
