Bad Sellers
« on: June 30, 2019, 11:43:56 AM »
I was scanning Ebay to see what cold hardy citrus was listed. While scanning I ran across this seller offering a hardy blood orange. Knowing blood orange is zone 9 citrus I had to contact and ask what zone where these bood oranges for and this was his reply.
Dear will2358,
Thank you for contacting us. This blood orange tree can thrive in USDA Hardiness Zone 4. If you have any other question or concern, don't hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards,


Of course I had to respond back. Sellers like this ruin it for the good honest sellers. My goodness he went down to zone 4.

Ebay is not a good place to buy trees, unless you know the seller.

Ebay sellers are looking for dollars...they are not citrus people. If you want something try this forum....these are citrus people........

Yes, Ebay sellers have become awful. I use to have tons of citrus that I grew in a greenhouse, before I became ill. Due to the illness I lost all except 3. Most I got off of Eaby and was very satisfied, but that was years ago. Now you have lots of bad sellers.
