What’s the deal with dehusking?

Valley Macadamia

Macadamia nut husks are high in sugars. Here’s how to dehusk your macs in a way that avoids moulding and deterioration of your nut quality.

Here are some tips on getting the most from your nuts:

  • Check at least every week for ripe fruit, and pick nuts with husks opening on the tree
  • Harvest nuts off the ground every few days, especially after windy conditions
  • Don’t leave harvested nuts in a bucket or bag in a warm area for more than a day.

What to do with the husk? They can be worked into your compost bin or fed to cattle.
