Does anyone have a Grand Frost and can share seeds?

Thank you!

Youíll probably only find them from someone in the state of Georgia since thatís where it originated and Georgia is quarantined for HLB so no citrus allowed to come in or out of GA. We canít even get it in different states in the USA. Maybe you can contact a nursery in southern GA and ask if they can send you a tree overseas. I doubt it, but you could try.

I just want to point out that Grand Frost (being derived from Ichang lemon) almost certainly would not be able to survive in Germany zone 7.

Why not buy a GF tree grafted to PT or FD.  How does GF lemon compare to a Harvey lemon, taste, or cold hardiness.

In Europe you can't because there isn't one. Only know about the taste and hardiness from what I've read - ordinary lemon taste but cold hardy to -8 įC. In my micro-location, it goes right about there.

Would it be better to make new European hybrid for cold hardiness which would adapt to zone 7. I suggest everybody do crosses next spring.

Good luck getting a decent cold hardy hybrid that will consistently perform well in zone 7 without protection.
