Even if you could, I believe Florida has made it illegal for a residential homeowner to propagate citrus, even by seed.  I could be wrong on that.

I wont be growing them in fl just shipping them and wont have the package opened till they arrive here in sxm.
Just wondering will it break any laws simply shipping citrus seeds into the state.

Thanks for the offer but mailing directly to sxm is a pretty bad idea not sure when of if I would get them.

I think Harris Nursery in Florida carries Yuzu. They are not currently listing Yuzu on their site, but they did in the past.

I've ordered from them about3 times so far always satisfied.
My only issue is that they wont ship grafted trees in the same box as bush cuttings. Due to the difference in pot size. So the extra box makes it a bit pricey for me.
