Australian Finger Lime Export?

Berkeley, CA(Zone 9b)

Australian Finger Limes are just starting to be available via U.S. growers. However, to my knowledge, they're growing seedling trees. A couple growers in Australia have started breeding and selecting cultivars.

I've sent emails 'round but can't find anyone who will export to the U.S. Do any of the Aussies here have suggestions for how an American can legitimately purchase and import a finger lime cultivar from Oz?

you cannot legally import any citrus into CA (I'm in the same boat here in AZ). But you can legally buy a finger lime tree or seeds from a CA business:

BTW: the finger lime seeds I got from Trade Winds all sprouted within 3 weeks!

Thanks, 2nd Chance. I really want to get the cultivated varieties, which won't grow true to seed, I'll bet.
