Unfortunately, I don't think you will find what you are looking for. All citrus budwood in the state has to be registered and certified free of disease. Because of stringent changes to state laws due to HLB (greening) homeowners are not encouraged to propigate their own citrus, and I think you will find it impossible to legally obtain bud wood for propogation without a commercial citrus nursery license.

On top of it being hard to get without a commercial license, FL is only giving budwood in-state nurseries at the moment I believe.

I wish they make their process more like California's CCPP to give hobbyists and other civilians nationwide a clean route for budwood.

I was thinking that nurseries that are allowed to sell citrus trees here can also sell cuttings.

Do they also regulate every other unrelated species that can harbor HLB? It would only make sense to do so, in Fl

They regulate the related species that can harbor greening. I am not familiar with unrelated species harboring greening, just the psylids. I remember a local ornamental nursery having their orange jasmine plants confiscated back when this all started. Here is the link to FDACS. There is another link on that page that lists the restricted species. They are not illiegal to grow, they just have to be grown in a screened structure like citrus--which basically means that no one is selling them now.

Found  this recent article
https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=43947
I wonder what specific type of trifoliate they’re referring to?
Another article states UF has produced 50+ Tolerant rootstock cultivars alone, and several varieties of edible citrus other than just SugarBelle.
Some more interesting info..
Eremocitrus may be even more resistant than microcitrus??

Other useful info..
https://crec.ifas.ufl.edu/extension/trade_journals/2014/2014_November_HLBsol.pdf

One of these articles states that true lemons will ‘shed’ off the disease after each winter, and produce quality fruit. Weird

Question is, when can we lesser men obtain these varieties, even just as scions?

Or more importantly.. where is Swingle when the world needs him most??! 😂
