I've never bought citrus from these guys, but I've had good luck with the fruits I've purchased from them. I usually pick up my trees at the nursery as they are only a couple of hours away, but their main business is mail-order.

Its always good to check with your feed store& sometimes Lowes will carry some,but usually lemon or limes.
Me?I order through Acorn nursery,but can save on shipping by letting them ship to my feed store with their order and pick up from feed store.My Satsuma will arrive this week....full of fruit laugh

Thanks for all the sites- they were really helpful. One question though- can they handle full sun? My patio gets direct sun all day- do you think that would be okay? I keep my avocados at the front of the house, as they need the shade. Just not sure about the citrus trees...
Thank you grinnnn
