Citrus sudachi

Violet Cactus starts with ...
Anyone growing this?
Information:
An uncommon citrus similar in size to a very large calamondin or small tangerine. Fruits ripen to orange but are often used when green. The fruits are very acidic, but with excellent flavor.
Description: Medium sized tree to 15-25ft. It is believed to be a hybrid between C. ichangensis and C. reticulata, but shows typical species-like propagation by seeds. The fruits are best known from the Tokushima prefecture of Japan, where the vast majority of supply is grown. Fruits generally ripen in the Fall, a bit earlier than many of the more common citrus fruits. The fruits grow to 1-1.5 ounces. In Japan, the fruit is prized alongside its cousin, the yuzu.
Hardiness: Trees are hardy to some frost and generally show hardiness along the same lines as the yuzu.
Growing Environment: Grow in full sun. Water regularly during warmer months, less so during the cold season. Fertilize like regular citrus.
Propagation: Grafting is common, but the sudachi can also be propagated by seeds. The seeds are very slow to sprout when dried.
Uses: Fruits are quite acidic but have a wonderful flavor reminiscent of a lemon. The fruits can be eaten fresh but are also used in flavoring beverages and desserts. The fruit is also the symbol of the Tokushima prefecture in Japan. Fruits are often served in single slices, accompanying traditional Japanese

Hi Wedgewood, no I've given up looking. As Jake said, I'd be surprised if it's in Oz. :(
Nevertheless I haven't given up hope. If you find a source Wedgewood, would you mind letting me know?

Still looking. I am on the list for yuzu when the rootstock is available but still searching for sudachi. I think it will do well in the Blue Mtns where I have my orchard. Happy to let you know when/if I hunt it down!

Hi Guys,
You can get the Yuzu from a mail order nursery in north eastern NSW. They only send citrus to NSW, QLD & VIC/ACT only due to quarantine laws. They have the grafted in very limited qtys throught out the year, so they have a wait list but they also sell the seedlings, which they have in stock now too, which they told me were polyebryonic and grow 100% true to type and will fruit in as little as 3-6 years.
They also have other tropical fruits and nut trees and seeds mostly edibles.
They are on ebay and have a website direct too. Have included their contact details below.

Hi,
Just wanted to update you that if you are still after the Sudachi citrus "Forever Seeds " mail order nursery have them but very limited qty from time to time. They have a wait list for them but they also do pre-paid orders on them to guarantee you a plant when they do become available.
So I decided to get the pre-paid option as they are just so rare I dont want to miss out on the tree. Webiste below:

Hi Jakfruit etiquette,
Yes it is the Grafted Sudachi, they have the Grafted Yuzu in both the normal one and the Dwarf Yuzu too.
The Sudachi is just so amazingly rare I was surprised to find it at all, so very happy to have found them with Forever Seeds. I have been on the search for this tree for at least 10 years or more. I have some Japanese friends and they introduced me to it so long ago when traveling in Japan, but could not find them anywhere in Australia.
I have pre-paid an order for a couple of the grafted Sudachi trees cause I want to make sure I can get my hands on them when they do become available, I think they said around December this year 2014, so it will be a nice Chrissy present.
