Hy all, I joined this forum in search of Ichang lemon and improved Meyer lemon seeds. I have found few sellers on eBay but they are asking way too high for 10 seeds (shame). I was wondering does anyone here has those seeds and is willing to send me some. I am eager to grow Ichang and improved Meyer (because od cold hardiness) and want to try grow them in my climate. I live in Croatia but in my microclimate ordinary lemon wouldnt survive. That is why I am searching those two lemon species. Anyway, if someone is willing to help let me know. Thanks for reading.

If im not mistaken all Myer lemons are clone propagated by grafting. So the seeds you sprout from a Myer lemon may be nothing like a Myer lemon, but then would still most likely need grafting to have adequate root stock. Your best bet would be get cuttings of improved myer scion, after you root cuttings of the appropriate root stock; then graft your myer lemon scion to make your own tree; however, with all that hassle time and potential expense. Wouldn't it be cheaper an faster to just spend $20 and get a properly grafted improved myer lemon tree? Shop around, im sure you could find a good deal on a 2 year old tree.

Hope that helps!
