Macadamia trees have been grown in the White River area in Mpumalanga Province for many years. Either these few farmers knew something others didn’t know or they were just lucky!
Today, due to the insatiable demand for the macadamia nut around the world, particularly in China and the United Stated of America there are simply not enough macadamias. Now it appears that the area around the town of White River is perfect for their growth.
The result is an explosion in the planting of macadamia trees in the area. There is now an estimated 28 000 hectares planted. This is increasing by 2 – 3 thousand every year. The centre of the macadamia industry in South Africa is White River, in an area stretching from Tzaneen in Limpopo Province in the North, and Barberton in Mpumalanga to the South.
