Apparently they're both cold/moisture hardy so could be a good option for the UK. They have been sprouting really easily so thought I'd post on here if anyone is interested in getting some. I may also post on the Swaps/Freebies forum to see if there's any interest there. If you're interested, it'd be great if you could cover postage but I'm also open to swaps if you have something interesting.
Sounds like you on a win mate! My trifoliate orange seedlings are just starting to open their buds now its spring, can't wait till they really start growing again. :D

Will the fruit from those seeds be edible?

The only citrus I've got is a kumquat grafted on a lemon rootstock, it's just had its 3rd winter outside and is happy. Not much luck with fruit though.

Wendy - were you referring to the hardy citrus seeds that I have? If you're interested, send me a private message. Otorongo - I think the fruits are edible but quite sour... with a taste somewhere between a lemon and a grapefruit. They are used a lot for flavouring in Japanese and Korean cuisine.
