Macadamia Integrifolia

The most popular native nut tree in Australia, macadamia nuts fetch a high price in the shops, but are also an abundant crop in the home garden. An outstanding Australian rainforest tree that also tolerates the cold, the evergreen foliage and dense habit is perfect for hedging. Growing to no more than 4-5m, macadamias are perfect for the home garden, and make an excellent firebreak.

How to grow

Macadamias do best when given adequate summer irrigation and fertiliser. Suitable for screening, hedging or as a specimen tree, pruning is only required for shaping or to control growth. All Macadamias will produce and acceptable crop of nuts on their own, however, heavier cropping will occur with several trees planted in the same area. Grafted trees will crop in 3-4 years. Seed grown plants in 7-8 years. Fertilise with Blood and Bone in spring and autumn. Water as required. Collect nuts from the ground in autumn and allow to dry. Shake then nuts - when you hear the rattle, they are ready to shell and consume. Macadamia pollination: All Macadamias will produce and acceptable crop on their own as the flowers are complete with both male and female parts. Heavier cropping will occur with several trees in the same area.
