Macadamia 205 GT
Bred to withstand cooler and wetter growing conditions. Brown nuts in a green shell will drop in mid-spring to early-summer, but can be hand-picked before that. Heavy yields and high oil content for an excellent, roasted flavour. Takes 4-5 years to first fruit and 7-8 months for the nuts to mature. Fragrant, pink flowers in spring and summer. Pollination by honey bees. Needs cross pollination by another variety. Grows approximately 5m high x 4m wide in 10 years.
Full sun. Best planted early spring in a fertile, well drained, sheltered site. Stake young trees to assist root development and protect from frost while young. Maintain good moisture content during nut growth to prevent nuts dropping. Prune to maintain desired shape and size, ensuring the canopy stays open to assist pollination by insects. Fertilise seasonally.
