Current Comments

"Macadamias are easier to grow in South Florida than lychees, they are less delicate and grow faster, besides they bear regularly year after year. But they are very susceptible to soil conditions. I've tried growing them in alkaline soils in Dade county, and found that a very difficult task. On mucky soil however, they truly thrive. I have four different varieties, two Integrifolias (pink flowers, bumpy skin) and two ternifolias (white flowers, smooth skin). They all grow and fruit well here. As with lychees they grow better in the acid soils".- Mario Lozano, April 1998
