Certified Key Lime Budwood For Sale
You will receive a minimum of 15 Key Lime buds from our certified increase trees. These are the same mature buds we use to graft the trees we sell on our website.
Our budwood is cut fresh for each order and we recommend using the budwood as soon as it arrives. However if you can't use it right away, you can store your budwood in a sealed Ziploc bag, in the fridge, for up to a couple weeks. Our budwood is sold to be used for grafting and is almost always shipped without leaves and are not designed to be rooted.
We also offer a selection of certified citrus rootstock that is ready to be grafted click here for certified citrus rootstock.
* We are providing certified true to type citrus budwood for your grafting purposes. We do not guarantee your success rate.
In general we typically have budwood available however occasionally our increase trees are in a flush and too tender to ship. As a result of this please allow up to 30 days from time of order to time of shipping, however we will do our best to ship buds out on the next available shipping day. If you have any questions please contact us prior to ordering and we can help with the order.
How To Successfully Graft Citrus Trees:
Many have asked us how we graft our trees so we have put together a YouTube video showing the process, please check out that video and subscribe to our YouTube channel:
Please keep in mind that we are unable to ship any citrus to AZ, CA, HI, FL, LA, TX. These restrictions are due to USDA Agricultural laws. We do ship growing supplies such as potting mix, fertilizer and non citrus material items to AZ, FL, LA, and TX.
- We ship via UPS Ground
- We are currently only shipping on Mondays until Spring
- If your order is placed after 9am on Monday it will likely ship the next week.
- Trees may need to be topped or pruned to fit in the box.
- Tracking number will be emailed to you when your order ships, please check your spam folder if you don't see an email.
These are a few questions we are often asked and their answers:
Why dont you ship to FL or CA?
We aren't able to due to USDA restrictions, we wish we could but we can't.
When will my tree fruit?
We graft with certified mature buds so our trees are capable of flowering and producing fruit in the first season, but will definitely flower and produce fruit in the second season. We recommend removing fruit for the first couple years to allow the tree to focus on branching and growing roots.
What does this variety taste like?
In most cases the original Budwood program we purchased Certified buds from does not offer much in the way of descriptions or taste information. We then grow those buds out and continuously harvest new buds and then sell young trees so we simply don't always end up with fruit to try so unless its listed, we don't know what they taste like.
Do you have anymore of these available?
We try hard to add inventory when it grows large enough, if a product shows as 0 available please click the notify button to be emailed as soon as we add inventory to the site.
What rootstock is this grafted onto?
We use a handful of rootstock varieties for different reasons when we are grafted. If the variety says "Dwarf" then that variety is grafted to Flying Dragon. If it is not listed as Dwarf then we either used a standard rootstock or semi dwarfing rootstock. When fully mature the difference between Dwarf and Standard is only about 80% difference, it just takes dwarf longer to grow that large. You can maintain tree size through pot size and effective pruning.
