Abstract

Most of the known cultivars of macadamia (Macadamia integrifolia Maiden & Betche) found in Hawaii and California are grown in the collection of the Agricultural Research Organization of the Volcani Center. Yield and nut quality of these cultivars have been determined within the last 10–15 years under Israeli conditions, but none have proven satisfactory. This report describes a superior local selection named ‘Yonik’ derived from a seedling population.

Abstract

‘Fuchs-20’ (Persea americana Mill.) was selected in an experiment carried out during 1959-60 to find a highly tolerant rootstock for saline conditions from West Indian seedlings of 5 different groups and hybrids, including seedlings of ‘Fuchs’ (West Indian x Guatemalan). Plants were grown in containers and irrigated with highly saline water (1330 ppm NaCl). Only 4 plants survived. These survivors were planted in an orchard in order to obtain material for further experiments by vegetative propagation. ‘Fuchs-20’, a ‘Fuchs’ seedling marked No. 20, was the only one of these 4 plants from which cuttings have been successfully rooted (2) (350 ppmCl), (1). Trees of various cultivars grafted on ‘Fuchs-20’ rootstocks show excellent performance without any damage due to salinity in a commercial orchard irrigated with water containing 380-400 ppmCl, (A. Ben-Ya’acov, unpublished data).

Abstract

Sprays of (2-chloroethyl)phosphonic acid (ethephon), applied at the beginning of the harvest season (usually January), resulted in more than 90% nut drop of ‘Beaumont’ macadamia nuts, without causing damage to foliage or next year’s crop.
