Isn't It?

I have already contacted them in order to ask them some citrus nurseries addresses, where I can buy these cultivars.

As soon as I'll receive it, I'll post it in the forum.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but importing citrus from outside the european union is forbidden. :?
The sad part is: in the US is forbidden too, but the private grower can still import the cool stuff by asking the CCPP to import the stuff on their behalf, while we are forced to deal with the fact that the CRA of Acireale sucks from our point of view: and sucks hard.

it's a pity.
I'll ask them if they have had experiences of export citrus in UE, maybe they can advise me regarding european nurseries that have already some of that cultivars.

Moreover Japan does harbor the most devastating of the citrus problems, the greening disease, so the risk of importing it in Italy is significant.

european nurseries that have already some of that cultivars.
Amantsu is natusdadai, you can find it easily i think in Tintori or Lenzi
Banpeiyu i have some scions about to take, hopefully.
Buntan has been grown from @hereistay you can find a review on the forum.
Dekopon i have some scions
Haruka i have two seed grown plants thanks to kumasan, hopefully they will flower soon and will be true to type.
Sudachi and Yuzu should be findable from lenzi.
Tintori also has the lion yuzu (I did buy a plant last year).
So while not everything on such list is readily available i think you might find enought to have your hand full for some years, without any need to import.

Thanks Pancrazio, for these informations.
I have started recently to be interested at citrus cultivars, so I do not know many things.
