Warm Climate Nuts

Nut Growing Course: Nuts for the Sub Tropics and Tropics

The content of this course is very similar to the 'Growing Nuts' course, except this deals exclusively with nuts grown in the tropics and sub-tropics e.g. macadamias. This course is designed as a detailed look at identification and culture of nuts in warmer climates. Emphasis is placed on the species that are of horticultural value. There are many nuts that you would not be aware of coming from the various cultures of the tropics, that are of great interest to our use today.
