Anyone know where I can buy a grafted yuzu citrus?
I tried all the online places I knew of but all had the same story.......
No yuzu till 2020!

Or maybe someone has a yuzu growing or knows of one that I can get a few seeds from, please.

I suspect all available stock is being redirected to commercial growers now that the fruit has become popular in restaurant culture and has a high value.

I have a young tree that I got from our local Bunnings 2 years back - only ever saw one tree. It hasn't fruited yet and is quite a slow grower so I'm hoping it picks up this summer.

Yuzu are slow growers Mark. They will take between 4-8 yrs to fruit depending on whether the tree is a graft or seedling.
If you wish to prune it to encourage it to grow better, I would love the prunings please. I will drive down to get them.
I can graft them onto my lemon tree until I get better root stock growing.

Yes sure but there's nothing to prune at the moment... I'll take a pic tomorrow (if I can remember) and post it here to show you what I mean.

As soon as it's cranking I'll let you know, and if you still don't have a tree you can try grafting your own - I'd like to see that!
