Our orchard is located on a little over 8 acres of
sun kissed volcanic soil on the Big Island of Hawaii. Guests from
around the world enjoy staying in our Bed and Breakfast, surrounded
by our bountiful Macadamia trees. Charlêné [your hostess] incorporates a complimentary educational
orchard tour into guest's stay. Discussed is everything from the history
of Macadamia Nut farming in Hawaii, to day to day challenges of farming
in the 21st Century. Guests enjoy picking a few nuts from the orchard
floor during the tour and experiencing the intoxicating taste of a Macadamia
fresh from the tree.
The story of our pink blossom tree
While walking in our orchard this spring with a guest,
I came across the blossoms you see pictured here. I couldn't believe
my eyes. All our Macadamia nut trees have "white" blossoms and here
was a tree that clearly had pink flowers [ or as the flowers are more
properly called "racenes"]. I had been walking by this tree for the
last 7 years but never noticed the pink flowers. Apparently I
had coincidentally passed at a time when the flowers had already been
pollinated. After pollination it is much harder to discern their
pink color. I knew pink blossomed trees existed, I had simply never personally
seen one here on the Big Island.
Upon some investigation I discovered that a variety of Macadamias "Tetraphylla" were used some 30 yrs. ago as root stock here on the Big Island. The white blossomed variety of Macadamias "Integrifolia" were grafted into it. Our tree apparently rejected the graft and grew an entire tree from the root stock. [would you like to taste a nut from this tree? The taste and texture is slightly different from the "Integrifolia variety. The nut shell is also "dimpled" unlike the smooth shell of the white blossomed tree. We don't have a lot of these nuts. If you would like to sample some click on the "Place your Order" link below. We'll fill orders until we run out of nuts].
If you can't visit us in person, then the next best
thing is indulging in the taste delight of our Hawaiian grown
Macadamias. We're working hard to grow our nuts pesticide free.
