@cannabissequoia well, it's supposed to be a Southern Highbush variety which is a GM hybrid that is supposed to be hardy in warm climates. It is highly possible however that I got a bs plant. I had a very hard time finding one as CA has very strict import codes for bareroot fruit trees. I found only one company that would ship me one. It did not come bareroot but in a tiny bit of soil. It's gonna take years for this sucker to establish and I knew that going in. It also said this variety is self-pollinating, but it does do better with another type of bush nearby. I can only hope for the best and wait it out.
If I want another one from a really reputable company, I may have to have one shipped to my Mom's vacation house in Las Vegas and have her smuggle it back for me. So far, the million times I've drove back and forth I've only ever been waved through the CA Agricultural station at the border. I think this may be my answer.
@HappyHemper it's funny how much I take our citrus trees for granted! They are in every other backyard here. I even have one in mine, a kumquat tree, I never eat them. lol
