I'm from Peru and I would like to have a peruvian lemon tree at home but I dont know what's the name that they use here in California. Here they sell mostly what they call Improved Meyer Lemon, but that's not what I want. Do you have any suggestions or where do I have to go or write to have my question answered? Thank you for reading me. Javier

You are looking for Citrus aurantifolia, the Peruvian lemon. I cannot find a source of this lemon for you but you might try doing a websearch for nurseries that deal in exotic fruits. Best wishes with your search.
