The macadamia nut tree hails from eastern Australia and feature a dense upright/oval canopy of evergreen leaves with wavy margins. The foliage is extremely handsome and tropical-looking. In late winter and early spring the trees produce 12" long, dangling clusters of tiny pinkish white flowers that mature into 1", round green fruits. The green outer shell and husk are inedible, but the white kernel inside is edible and delicious. Macadamia trees generally do not produce large crops of fruit in hot humid climates such as South Florida, but are worth growing for the beauty of the tree alone.
Macadamia nut trees do best in a deep, rich, but well-drained soil with a slightly acid pH (5.0 - 5.5). They need regular irrigation during dry weather for best flowering and nut crops. The trees produce best in full sun but will tolerate light shade.
