The below video shows how to set up an account and place an order for citrus budwood from California’s Citrus Clonal Protection Program or CCPP. Citrus budwood is used for grafting citrus trees and budding citrus trees.
By law all new citrus varieties in California are introduced via the CCPP whether from outside the state or from within the state. CCPP scientists use proven techniques to eliminate all diseases from each citrus variety before release. The CCPP budwood program is available for citrus nurseries and hobbyists both inside and outside of California.

California Law Regarding Citrus Propagation
In California, the collection of any citrus propagative materials, including budwood and seeds, from non-registered sources is illegal. Any citrus trees grown or grafted in California must come from source trees registered with either:
- The Citrus Nursery Stock Pest Cleanliness Program, administered by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, or
- The Citrus Clonal Protection Program, located at the University of California at Riverside.
