AUSTRALIAN FINGERLIME SEEDS and BUDWOOD . OTHER LIMES.
« on: January 12, 2016, 05:31:03 AM »
We have seeds and budwood from 5 Types of fingerlims for sale.  All our seeds are fresh from this years crop, 2016 and are from seed and cutting grown trees. They will be true to form. One of the trees was growing on our farm as a native.
We do not sell by name as one grower names his Rich Red and another will call  it Red centre. Ours are sold by fruit description.
We also have seeds and budwood of Davidson Plum, Kaffir Limes, Rangapur Limes, Mexican Limes, Calamanci Limes, Gympie Limes, Blood Limes, Sunrise Limes.

You know most fingerlimes grown from seed aren't true to type esp the PBR and ACRA registered stuff!

My pet peeve is when people SELL seeds of PBR and ACRA limes - you should just offer those in trade or.skip it entirely coz there is no guarantee that after 7-15 years of mollycoddling a seed grown tree that fruits will be true to type.

A seed grown plant from a seed or cutting plant will be true to type. We even have one native tree growing on our property. We have no trouble getting 2/3 year old seed grown plants to fruit.

It is strictly prohibited for any citrus material, plants, seeds and budwood, to be shipped into or out of the State of Florida.

There are selected Florida growers who are authorized to ship out of the State but thats about it.

And Rob not every Oz seller is able to jump thru BICON hoops as well to be able to legitimately sell and ship plants/budwood out of Oz.
Something to keep in mind for our fellow TFF members. Money esp for international purchases PLUS shipping is not outright cheap so check around, look at feedback/reputation/history before committing to a purchase.

You are missing the point.  The reason is the effects on our citrus industry.   It is prohibited by law.

We will never abuse the laws of other countries..  I am a retired Vietnam Vet.  I do this as a supplement to my small income from the farm and a Repat pension. 

I hope to have some seeds for sale from the Mt White Lime soon... Email me for information...dysonjk@bigpond.com
