Laaz, are those seedling from the same seed, or was multiple seeds planted?  What is the cultivar?

That's not support, that's to keep the tree rats & birds from ripping them up.

So, I'm pretty much down to these I still need...

Monachello lemon
Corpaci lemon
Sungold variegated lemon (Not pink)
and
Lumia lemon hybrid. This was obviously available in CA in the past, so there must be plants around...  https://citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/lumia.html

If the trees ever become available... But no, I'm not willing to "pay a premium price" for a seedless lemon. Joe Real just sent me budwood for a seedless lemon.

Uf....That announcement sounds like some kind of sect.  Clear example of company, where half of the price is "story and brand".
Something like bottle of city water for 100$, because it is unique, carefully packed, our staff do it with love,  America’s No. 1 and 100% organic.

Of course it all about money.  What else, isn't most everything?  However, I for one would prefer a seedless lemon.

There are a few out there already. Doesn't really matter to me, I don't eat lemons out of hand.

Looks like in Italy, they distinguish  different kinds of lemons from the same cultivar.
Femminello comune is a greatly reflowering cultivar with high setting aptitude; it has five annual blossomings to which five different names of fructifications correspond.
The most important blossoming, from a qualitative point of view, is the first, which produces fruit that ripen from October to March. They are the so-called ‘’winter lemons’, with a more or less rough epicarp, a high sourness and a variable number of pips. The earliest fruit of this first blossoming, which ripen between September and October, are called Primofiore; they are highly valued on the market. Then, there are the so-called ‘‘maiolini’, ‘’biancucci’ or ‘’bianchetti’, which are light yellow, with a slightly rough epicarp, few pips and a lower level of sourness. Very often they bear fruit in bunches; the ripening is between April and May. The famous ‘verdelli’, ripen in the summer of the following year, are rather cheap. The verdelli, that usually grow in bunches, have a smoother epicarp, a low sourness and almost no pips (technically, they say that the pips are aborted). Then, there are the so-called ‘‘bastards’, which ripen in after more or less a year and have a smooth epicarp and a deep yellow colour. Lastly, we have to remember the ‘‘marzani’, usually picked together with the winter lemons. They are never numerous, more or less of a round shape, and they have a rough epicarp, a long and flat umbo, a certain number of pips and a high sourness.
