I put these in early winter but would have preferred to do this in Spring. However our weather in Far North Western NSW is reasonable and they are doing well after only a month in.

They should cope with Melbourne cold, but may want supplemental water. Mine have survived -3C without protection or treatment. They are slower growing in the cold, but cope with 'mild' frost!

The nuts taste great but but this tree has very poor fruit set i have tried mulching fertilizing and watering. I have planted another nearby as a pollinator as i have heard some are self-incompatible.

Produces good crop of nuts each year. Handsome tree with beautiful pink flower racemes.Top pruned the tree to half size so as to be able to reach nuts. This resulted in a much denser lower tree.

Bardon, Qld, Australia

Apart from being a shade tree and beuautiful and old, this tree is a pain! It must be about 100yrs old, on the property already. It drops masses of nuts but many are rotten or poor in flavour and we have rats everywhere that enjoy them. It is too close...

Thora, NSW, Australia

The trees were here when we moved in! They look quite old, and they require no real attention...but they give such a fantastic nut. The black cockatoos have now discovered them but there are plenty for everyone including the rats!

Got the original nuts from an old neighbours tree and have planted one or two in every place we have lived in since.  Did very well at my last place, just waiting for this one to get going.

Again, this tree was already on the block when we bought it.  Unfortunately the cockies eat most of the nuts when they are still in their green stage and we get very few.
