Does anyone have a source for these in the USA?

Iíve been searching for years, havenít found one yet.

This seems to be the only place I can find them, but from Australia so take it as you will. I havenít purchased from here before so I cannot say anything about them.

I guess the CCPP would be our only choice
https://citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/eremocitrus.html

However Australia being free of HLB I think it would be possible to import from there:

https://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/plants/plant_imports/federal_order/downloads/2016/2016-31.pdf

https://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/plants/plant_imports/federal_order/downloads/hlb_cvc.pdf

"Non-restricted countries may import Rutaceae seeds with an import permit, phytosanitary certification from the country of
origin, and a declaration that the country of origin is free of HLB and CVC. " I've been meaning to make a post asking about this as ive never imported seed and citrus/rutaceae have so many regulations

Here is a seller who offers various finger lime cultivar seeds that interest me too:

CCPP has these? Iím about to order if they do. I didnít even check with them assuming itís not in the states. I attempted to go through the order process, but it comes to about $50 USD after tracking (and permits I guess) to ship out 20 seeds. Who knows if theyíre viable? I donít think I could take a chance at that price.

Where did you find that they will ship seeds?

To which thing are you referring to?

if youre talking about "forever seeds" its on their seed page (also these are colorful fingerlime cultivars not desert lime iirc)
i should add I feel naturally hesitant about nursery sites that rely entirely on stock images but thats not an automatic disqualifier (and australian nursery sites seem to be bigger on this than many american ones)

annnd I found a negative reivew on their FB :( https://www.facebook.com/pg/ForeverSeeds/posts/?ref=page_internal

Exactly, that's a major concern of mine! I'm also having a hard time finding reviews / vouches.

I think the CCPP does have scions available.
