Macadamia nut what height shoul I keep it..?
« on: April 06, 2021, 10:53:54 PM »
This is the second year that my tree flowers. It is flowering now. However it didnít produce any nut yet and the tree is getting to tall. What size should I prune I guess in winter? Thanks

Most macadamias need two trees for pollination.

I didn't know that. I have a small Beaumont and I got a sheet pan full of nuts this year with no other trees in the neighborhood. I was surprised not all the flowers set though given how many bees were around. So probably two trees are better.

I was not planning to prune it since I pick the nuts off the ground rather than off the tree.
