Macadamia Renown 3.3L
An evergreen, nut bearing tree. Produces clusters of large nuts in hanging racemes. Nuts drop when ready for harvest. An easier variety to crack the nuts of. Takes 4-5 years to first fruit and 7-8 months for the nuts to mature. Harvest from April to May when nuts are full size. Pollination is by honey bees. Perfumed pink flowers. Self fertile but produces a better crop when cross-pollinated with another variety. Grows approximately 6m 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 heavy frosts, particularly 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.
