Where can I buy Meyer lemons?

Never heard of them but want to follow a recipe on Friday that calls for them.

They're listed in both the Tesco Finest range and are lurking on the Sainsbury's site but they won't let me actually order them.

Are they just out of season? Or are they a myth?!

I'll just substitute normal lemons I think, but just wondering if anyone has any tips.

They have thin skins. Never seen them for sale - have had a couple of trees but they died!

That link says they should be in season in December! I found another old article celebrating TESCO importing them from America and putting them on the shelves for a limited period, so I guess they're just not a thing over here.
