Maccadamia Plantation

The macadamia is a glossy broadleaf evergreen with leaves that resemble holly, flowers ranging from pink to white, and edible nuts that ripen at random times during the growing season. Two species are grown for consumption. They are of two types Macadamia integrifolia and Macadamia tetraphylla. The smooth-shelled Queensland nut, M. integrifolia, and the rough-shelled nut, M. tetraphylla, are two types of macadamia native to Australia.

M. tetraphylla, is rough-shelled macadamia, a commercially-grown crop that doesn’t always have a rough shell, and has sweet nuts. M. integrifolia has light green new shoots and 11-inch leaves that are arranged in groups of three. M. tetraphylla has pink new shoots and 20-inch leaves that grow in groups of four.unlike M. tetraphylla has greater heat and frost tolerance than M. integrifolia. And unlike M. integrifolia, it contains variable amounts of fat and sugar that make for color and texture variations when roasted.

Managing Pests and Disease

In the continental United States, M. integrifolia and M. tetraphylla are not prone to pests and diseases.Some pests, like the dreaded macadamia nut borer or Botrytis blossom blight, live in the tree’s native Australia, and are not a problem here in the US. However, a tree may become vulnerable, especially in the event of weather extremes, or over- or under-watering.Signs of trouble include discolored, disfigured, or dropping leaves; scarred bark; and prematurely dropping fruit. And while some pests may make your tree their home, the damage they cause may not be extensive enough to cause large-scale damage to your tree or crop.
