Santa Teresa and Femminello are different lemon varieties, similar but not the same (the St. Teresa was derived from the Femminello). The Santa Teresa is also sometimes known as the Sorrento, so you can try looking for that name as well. Have you tried Brite Leaf? If they don't grow this lemon variety, they might know who does in Florida. I'm pretty sure that the lemon tree that I revived when I bought our home is some Italian lemon variety. It is definitely not a Eureka or Lisbon. It's pretty thorny, but the lemons are really large and kind of lumpy. Almost like a Ponderosa, but not quite as big, and the skin isn't quite that thick. It produces a prolific amount of lemons, now. It was a dead stick when I moved in - wasn't even sure what type of citrus it was until a few lone flower buds appeared.
