One of the most frequently asked questions is "what macadamia nut variety is best for me?" We have twenty three varieties of macadamia nut trees on our orchard. Three or four varieties would be ideal.
There are two broad varieties: those whose nuts drop, and those whose nuts prefer to be picked, called stickers.
When deciding what macadamia nut variety to purchase, get a range of opinions from experienced orchardists and processors in your local area. Be wary of advice from some nurserymen, as they are likely to have an interest in selling those varieties they grow or stock rather than those best suited to your unique situation.
