Growing Macadamia

Macadamia is a slow-growing evergreen tree that can grow up to 20 metres high, though usually it is about 10 metres. It prefers a subtropical climate with warm, humid summers and mild winters. It can be planted with a distance of 8 metres between trees.


Macadamia trees from seedlings mature in 7–10 years. However, trees from grafted plants mature early. They are slow-growing trees and need plenty of sunlight. Macadamia trees can be pruned to keep them small.


Pruning is necessary to control the size and shape of the tree and to promote healthy growth. Macadamia can be planted in containers but needs regular pruning and maintenance to reach a manageable size.

The tree needs regular watering, especially during the growing season.
