Thanks I think I'll try lemons for now
Lemons seem nice and all...
But I want a more exotic kind of citrus
You can always breed citrus!
How do I do that?
It is a long and hard process..
But you can send your citrus that you want to breed to a citrus breeding facility
Where they will cross your parent fruits
Then it will be taken for around 5 years of testing until you can commerically grow it
How long would that take?
Okay I'll go there right away!

Later that year...
