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.
