Macadamia (ternifolia F. Muell.) grows in Ethiopia in the same belt as its world-famous coffee. The trees serve as shading agents for the arabica variety because of their sizable heights of a maximum 12 meters. The name of the tree derives from its namesake, John Macadam, a statesman and scientist from Australia, where the tree grows natively. The first discovery of the species was in the late 1820s by Allan Cunningham. It was not until 1857, however, that the name ‘macadamia’ became the common term for the tree.
We source our macadamia from the cool mountainous areas of ethiopia principally the Harar coffee-growing region of the eastern highlands. With altitudes that bring about 1000 to 2000 millimeters of annual rainfall, these areas require little irrigation for the crop. The temperature is relatively fair, at 25 ° Celsius which is also the average for the fruit growth. The mixture of volcanic soil of the region combines with the well-drained ground to produce a wonderful crop.
Our farming belts in Ethiopia exercise virtually no use of pesticides. This guarantees that we supply wholesome 100% organic nuts with no residual levels. Because of the nearness to the equator of the southwestern Ethiopia highlands, our macadamia have that extra nutritious tropical taste with an added crunchiness. The farmers grow the original tree that requires around 7 years to mature, with a yearly supply of the fruit, thereafter. The country has also began growing the faster grafted variety that achieves fruition in as little as 24 months.
We pack our Ethiopia macadamia in well sealed foil bags. This minimizes the effect of shakiness during transportation, with little incidence of spilling. Our bags usually receive a supply of nitrogen to keep the oxygen away, which is a common cause of the loss of freshness on transit. We also provide nitrogen-free alternatives in form of vacuum bags that are well sealed to keep off air.
We keep the bags inside protective cartons in clear labeling. Our standard sizes for Ethiopia macadamia range from 11.34 kilos or 25 pounds per carton. During the entire post-harvest and packaging process, we keep our macadamia under an environment reflective of their cool field conditions of 8° Celsius. In certain cases, this can go up to 15° Celsius especially in very cold times. Our shipping guidelines are for keeping the packages under a relative humidity of 50 to 60 percent.
