They have all citrus seeds or all citrus plant material preserved?

Yes all citrus and most of the world plants are cryopreserved, plant organs or seed. The vault in Norway is the biggest in the world and it is meant to save plant material in case of a nuke war or other disaster. US and other governments have also national gene banks where they preserve the plants.
With the current worldwide environmental decline and climate change many species will disappear soon.

Hardyvermont, Edith Bogue is the seed parent. It's likely also the pollen parent, but there's a nearby 24 Below tree that could be the pollen parent.

I want to buy anywhere between 100-200 miracle fruit seeds. Is anyone able to supply this many in moist vermiculite?

Thank you!
and what about the colour of the flush of your 5StarXYuzu seedlings? Purple or green?

Usirius, no, Bernhard has been a little bit out of Citrus in the last years. He has lost most of hir plants after a storm had damaged his greenhouse. I have spent some time with him last summer and last weekend I met him in Vienna at the "Wiener Zitrustage". I wonder what 899-variety you have. The rather hairy fruits look strange to me. I have 4 899-F2-hybrids but only with 2 of them I am sure about the correct marking. I have (for sure) 899A and 899J and (quite sure) 899F and (don't know) 899E or H. All are blooming. 899A has sweet, mandarin-like fruits. 899J did not bear fruits yet and the fruits of the rest are not edible.
899A is monofoliate, 899J aswell, F and H Show trifoliate leaves, but very few with the years.

I read on Czech forum that it is not yet fruiting. Actually have around 50 seedlings of 5starXYuzu, some are extremely vigorous.   
You are right. I was misleaded by the dark purple colour of thje flush which reminded me strongly of my C. ichangensis IVIA. Same colour but trifoliate leaves. But it is CitrumeloXYuzu. Do you have it? Do you want it  ;) ?

I got the first, 'Jan Boyce' variety, avocado fruit!

About 3 years ago, Carlos (the Avocado Doctor) gave me a grafted, high quality fruit tree, potted Avocado variety called 'Jan Boyce', to see how it would do in my home-yard.

Story: the 'Jan Boyce' avocado tree grew to about 12 feet high. Then, a hurricane chopped it off above the graft. Itís now grown again to a height of about 12 feet. And, here are 2 pictures of the very first fruit (Picture Date: May 16, 2019):
