Not only are you in a quarantine area, which makes your finding a Rangpur Lime tree difficult, but Rangpur Limes are not a very poplar variety.  Most people do not enjoy the taste of the Rangpur.

Just wondering if you ever found an outlet nursery for the Rangpur lime trees? My brother lives in Austin and would like aRangpur lime.

My wife and I were just talking about Rangpur today, even sucked the juice out of 1 earlier.

I disagree about it being a terrible fruit, I enjoy Rangpur but I am also somebody that enjoys Kaffir Limes and eating lemons and limes out of hand... :P  Has a limey taste with a strong orange zest, very tart.

Great to add to fruit juices and for salad dressings.

I wouldn't plant an orchard of them but if you love citrus and novelties 1 tree is a must even if just potted.

I just have one Rangpur lime. It goes great with my Beer! So I'm not planning on a grove, just a small tree full. I enjoy the taste of mine, but I like sour citrus too.

This is exactly why I would never discourage anybody from having any tree... 99 out of 100 people could absolutely think it is the worst fruit but to that 1 person it could be their favorite fruit!

I'll give my opinion and love to hear others on each fruit but I'll never say something is an all around terrible tree.

Rangpur are great for marinades(use as a sour orange) and cocktails.
