The fascinating macadamia tree is responsible for the rich-tasting, sweet and smooth expensive nuts. Macadamia is a warm region plant and they begin to bear fruit in six to seven years.
These plants have glossy leaves and thick clusters of white and pink flowers. They love rain and high humidity, so it is advisable to plant in the wet season. They like consistent watering and protection from strong winds.
