Villafranca lemon?
« on: May 27, 2019, 02:30:52 PM »
Has the Villafranca lemon tree completely vanished from the USA? A few years back you could find them everywhere. Now it is impossible to find them anywhere. Anyone have a lead, please let me know.

Four Winds carried it until recently and the CCPP still has budwood. I have a young, newly grafted tree, but it will be some time before itís ready to be pruned.

I know they DID... Everywhere you look now says "Availability: Not commercially available in California."

Laaz give Four Winds a call, or sent them a text and ask them if they have any coming on line soon.  You could also send an E-mail to Dr. Robert Kruger at the CCPP and ask him why no commercial availability.  Dr. Kruger is a close buddy with Citrus Joe.

There is nobody in FL selling Villafranca? It used to be one of the major lemons in FL.
