Hi. I have the kaffir lime but I don't recommend you buying live trees because of the spread of citrus greening disease. I'm pretty sure that I have seeds if you want to get some.  I have to check my tree tomorrow.

There's an ebay seller from Sri Lanka whom I got my seeds from.  I don't specifically know if there are any issues with internationally shipping citrus seeds to Hawaii, though.

I have small and large types, fruits got yellow and dropped on the floor while I was away so probably seeds are ripe.
PM if you are still interested.

"I have small and large types, fruits got yellow and dropped on the floor"
Hi lebmung, can you post a pic of the fruit ? Also are there any differences internally with the pulp ??
I have seedlings of a small fruited type that was a bit more juicy than the large type with granular pulp.

That's pretty big, most of mine range from ping pong to large golf ball size. I have grafted trees and some fruiting seedlings. Some fruit have more neck.

Are those pics on your FB page ?

Yes you found them before me haha
I have two types one normal fruited and one big fruited that I collected from Thailand from an orchard long time ago after seeing big fruits.

My best sized Makrut fruit this year would fit nicely inside a tennis ball ( internal diameter ).
That is about the biggest they get here from 2 different grafted varieties, and some fruiting seedlings.
Sometimes they are highly seeded, sometimes few or zero seeds.
