I assume you are referring to the New Zealand Lemonade, correct?  As far as I know this  not available in FL.

Are you perhaps referring to a ujukitsu or sanbokan tree?

As far as I know there is no supplier of New Zealand Lemonade trees in Florida. An as you probably already know, a Florida resident cannot purchase citrus trees out of state, and have them shipped into Florida.  Currently, I believe you are stuck to growing the tree from seed. - Millet

Is sanbokan sweet enough to eat out of hand?

Yes, both are sweet.  I have the Ujukitsu and it is quite sweet, though I like it better than Mr. Texas, my fellow Sugar Land citizen.  I found one of his web pages about ujukitsu and sanbokan.  https://sites.google.com/site/mrtexascitrus/home/citrusvarieties

I'm looking at a bag of lemonade seeds that have germinated in a labelled bag right now....

After having a lot of problems with getting stuff out of Aus I'm not as eager to post as I once was. I actually offered these for trade a while back but got no reply. I dunno. Let me think about it.

BTW the 'NZ' lemonade tree  was probably developed in Australia, and is the same over there as it is here. They are the same thing. A lemonade tree is a lemonade tree.

I cannot understand why they are not sold next to mandarins and oranges in the fruit aisle. They are that good.

Starling1, what problem is there in shipping citrus seeds out of Australia?  Shipping seed should be no problem at all. - Millet

Not citrus seeds, I doubt I'll have an issue with any citrus, ever. The only issue is I can think of is if since the seeds have germinated they'll be classed as plants and therefore ineligible for export. Yes, I'm serious.

Anything unusual or otherwise outside the sphere of commonality that makes the AQIS staff raise their heads out of their puddles of drool tends to result in things being destroyed. They'd rather destroy everything rather than think, which I expect is a difficult task for a bunch of people who sit around picking their ears with chickenbones and wondering if there is a number higher than 11, or what the odds are on a coin toss.
