Macadamia pollination

Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute (18): 6-9
Macadamia pollination
When macadamias, Nelmak 1, were cross-pollinated the percentage of nut-bearing inflorescences amounted to 76 and 61 % some 30 and 50 days, respectively, after pollination. With self-pollination, however, the corresponding percentages were only 37 and 15 %.
