    Hi, I have been searching without luck to find why my macadamia tree has leaves that curl? Any ideas?

    A picture would be useful…..If they are brown on the edges, could be water stress or wind burn…

    This may just be the habit of new growth….looks a little pale but otherwise healthy.  If you have a named variety (apparently there are several varieties) it may help you with your question.  Doesn’t look bug infested, or very twisted (this happens if there is a copper deficiency)  My experience of them is limited to one, very old, very productive tree at a house we lived in years ago.  Yours may just need a bit of a feed (they are hungry trees:)).  Here’s a link to a 2003 (but probably still relevant) pdf from Qld gov.

    Cool thanks! My parents had an old one when I was younger and I want sure. Looking forward to when it produces, will keep up the feeding.
