caution

I suggest all members exercise extreme caution when mailing/shipping any type of citrus material across state lines.  Please research carefully and fully know your state laws, as shipper, and the potential recipient's state laws.  Thank you.

Just like to add that it's easy to forget that wampi, curry leaf, gin berry, white sapote, and a few other rare fruits are also in citrus family (rutaceae) and same caution should apply.

Yes, I was wondering about that because some/many nurseries in FL don't want to be hassled with selling citrus trees or wampi, but they all seem to have WS.

Rob, are you considering seeds as plant material?  I assume so, but haven't seen seeds restricted here in FL.  Thanks

Citrus can be ship to most all of the states, with the exception of Florida, Texas, Arizona, California which are citrus growing states. - Millet

You are only addressing the receiving.  There are also laws prohibiting the shipping out of the growing states.

Yes thank you, I was only addressing receiving citrus trees.  Many citrus areas now are under quarantine, and therefore are forbidden to ship any part of a citrus tree to any location.   - Millet

Also, you can't legally import citrus propagation material in europe. Unless they are seeds.
