Where can I buy full sized citrus trees?

All vendors I've been able to find online sell only dwarf trees. I live in Washington State so citrus trees are not available in nurseries even in the summer.

RE: Where can I buy full sized citrus trees?

are you planning to plant them in ground where the growth wont be limited? Otherwise the term "dwarf" can be misleading because given the right circumstance they can grow quiet large. Ive read some can reach 10'-12' in ground.

Thanks mksmith. Yes, planning to plant them in the ground. Lots of room so would like full sized trees, but will settle for dwarfs if I can't find full sized ones.

RE: Where can I buy full sized citrus trees?

interesting, I didnt think you could grow in ground in your state. I wish I could. Anyways I dont know of any place that specifically advertises their trees to be a standard size. I would say that unless they specifically advertise theirs as a dwarf, then I would assume they arent grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock. When in doubt you should be able to call any of the online nurserys and ask what their trees are grafted to.

Waldie, I might be wrong...but, I tend to agree with Mksmth...I didn't think Citrus can grow inground in Washington either. Unless you're building a very tall structure with heat and lights for the winter? What zone are you?

RE: Kaffir lime seeds

Hello Waldie,
In response to your post about Kaffir lime seeds

I had to plant the seeds that i did not get rid of so I no longer have them available, BUT i will have seedlings in the spring. If you are interested in a seedling please email me your preferred contact information and i will notify you in spring when they are ready. They are as of today about 2 inches tall and putting on there second set of leaves.
