I would be too afraid that I would kill the seed or seedling through improper care to request such a rare seed. I generally do pretty well germinating citrus seeds, but there is some added pressure when I only have one seed available from a variety.

I may be confused but isn't that variety cold hardy?

Would Xie Shan or Keraji survive in zone 8a?

Also I'm interested but something also amusing about selling a single citrus seed  ;D

Xie Shan is a seedless cultivar.  Finding a seed in a Xie Shan fruit is extremely rare.  This seed is the first I have ever found.  I did not sell the seed, I gave it away for free.
