Description: This is a clone from a mature macadamia tree found growing in North Miami Florida a few years ago. It is believed to be related to the Arkin Papershell variety of Macadamia. Some people have said it is identical to the Arkin Papershell. I can't verify that because I never tried or tasted the Arkin macadamia.
The publication Tropical Fruit News noted that Mr. Arkin worked to establish macadamia trees well suited to Florida and especially South Florida. This variety is currently named "Florida Champ"
These trees should begin to produce within 2-3 years and may flower at an early age. After flowering in the spring, trees will ripen their nuts during the following fall and early winter. Mature nuts drop to the ground, so you don't have to worry about harvesting from the tree. It is recommended to allow the trees to grow a good framework before allowing fruit to set. Bees play a critical role in pollination.
This tree is a good producer of delicious medium sized fresh nuts. The nuts, may be roasted and salted. Trees tolerate all Florida soils. Young trees need lots of water and once established, will live through some flooding, as well as some drought.
This order includes USPS Priority Shipping for one plant as described (2 day average delivery).

IMPORTANT READ THIS: These young trees must be kept from frost and cold temperatures. Mature trees will survive temperatures as low as 30 degrees F. Colder temperatures will severely defoliate and kill the tree, unless protected by blankets. Grow the tree in a pot in cold climates and bring indoors. Keep near bright light or in a greenhouse during cold weather.
Origin: Macadamia integrifolia is native to southeastern Queensland where it grows in the rain forests and close to streams. M. tetraphylla is native to southeastern Queensland and northeastern New South Wales, also growing in rain forests, in moist places and along stream banks. There are types that appear to be natural hybrids. The macadamia was introduced into Hawaii about 1881 where it was used as an ornamental and for reforestation. The Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station named and introduced several promising selections in 1948, which led to the modern macadamia industry in Hawaii. In California two seedling macadamias were planted in the early 1880's and are still standing on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. The importation of improved and named varieties into California from Hawaii began about 1950. Macadamias are also commercially important in Australia, South Africa and Central America.
