Louisport, too bad you did not mention wanting a Dekpon seed before the Citrus Expo.  The Dekopon on the judging table had a couple plump seeds.  I could have taken one and sent it to you.   I have two Dekopon trees, one growing in the ground, and one as a container tree.  If I find a seed I'll post it here.

I'd sure love to have a dekopon seed or two too, Millet :D.

Your yuzus have less seeds?
What do you mean? The pictures are from a yuko (I corrected the typo), not from a yuzu.
My yuzus are hon yuzus (the common yuzu) and have many seeds but I don't care because the main interest of yuzus is the zest.

Two years ago, I bought this Yuzu.

It has quite small leaves and some large thorns.

It was only this year, when I was told, that itīs grown from seed and has not yet fruited. Therefore, I acquired another Yuzu. The new plant has much larger leaves and small thorns. I suppose, this is the Yuzu most widely grown in European citrus collections. 

A comparison of the Yuzu plants. Both are grafted on trifoliate citrus.

The first one is definitely not a Yuzu. Some papeda, probably ichangensis.
Best regards,

I believe Hyuganatsu is probably a hybrid between Buntan (pomelo) and yuzu. However, there's no information about whether it demonstrates any unusual cold hardiness.

I planted a pomelo and yuzu right next to each other so hopefully in a few years I can try to see if any of the seeds turn out to be a hybrid.

Indeed, the plants are very different. Beside the differences already mentioned, the first plant has distinctive pale green leaves. Further, the citrusy smell of crushed leaves is not as perceivable as in the true Yuzu.

can't be Yuzu Strada Montana, because my plant isn't mature yet.
