Lemons, including meyer even though it's some sort of hybrid lemon, lemons have fairly good hlb tolerance. Desert lime has really high tolerance. They still get infected but they show very little symptoms. The meyer x desert lime is about the same as the desert lime in tolerance.

Similarly meyer lemon is fairly cold tolerant to begin with and the desert lime has high cold tolerance and so on so it's a really good hybrid.

Desert lime has high resistance to hlb and a lot of other things. I want the meyer lemon x desert lime cross. It seems to have the disease resistance of the desert lime for the most part but good tasting lemon like fruit and grows true to seed. It is used as root stock.

Where is this found?

I got one from highlanders. Not sure if he has any left though.

I don't know if you guys are still looking for this hybrid but wanderlust nursery released the razzelquat(Citrus glauca X depressa) and maybe Coachella Eremolemon in the future wich is the  meyer glauca hybrid. hpe this helps.
