Macadamia – Beaumont
Hybrid. Originated in Australia. Tree upright, ornamental. New leaves reddish, flowers bright pink, borne on long racemes.
Macadamia nuts have a very hard seed coat enclosed in a green husk that splits open as the nut matures. It holds a creamy white kernel containing up to 80% oil and 4% sugar. When roasted it develops a uniform color and texture. Texture and flavor very good.
Macadamias do best in full sun, although in hot climates partial shade can be beneficial. Windy locations should also be avoided.
Mature macadamia nuts will fall to the ground from late fall to spring. It is best to harvest fallen nuts, since shaking the trees to dislodge the nuts may also bring down immature nuts.
Recommended for home gardens.
