New Australians 2009 (Macademia and Burdekin)
Burdekin Plums and Macademia Nuts have finally arrived at Plantation House. Both trees were planted in the early 1990s as part of my first wave of developing my garden. Until April 2009 we got no fruit but both trees are now bearing and the Plum (Australian "bush tukka")is heavily laden. For many years, Macademia nuts were promoted as Hawaiian but they really originated in Australia, please welcome the 2 new Australians at Plantation House.
