The Rex Union is from Sth Africa
http://www.citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/rex_union.html

Its not likely to be found here
I'd say its going to be pretty close to Poorman Orange and/or Smooth Seville.
These are both similar hybrids to Rex Union. Poorman is milder than Smooth,
so getting both would be a good bet.
There are also many similar Sour X Pummelo Hybs in Japan.

Many thanks Jakfruit.
Unfortunately Rex Union is on the brink of extinction which is sad for many reasons, not least of which is that they make exceptionally good marmalade - and I like marmalade!

Hi Hamish. Many Citrus are polyembryonic, ie exact clones can be grown from seed.
I would try to find out if that is so for Rex Union. According to the link I posted it is available to be cultivated in USA.
