    WanaJF naomba mwenye uelewa wowote wa kilimo ch Macadamia anijuze. Najua kuwa ni zao ambalo bei yake ni nzuri kutosha. Mara ya mwisho nilizungumza na dada mmoja akaniambia kuwa kule Lushoto kuna watu wanalima hilo zao. hakuweza kunipa taarifa kwa kina cha kutosha.

    Zao hili lipo Tanzania? Hali gani ya ardi inahitajika? Najua Kenya wanafanya export ya zaidi ya USD120m kwa mwaka.

    Macadamia inatoa mbegu za mafuta kama ilivyo korosho. Hizo mbegu zinahitajika sana kwa watengenezaji wa chocolate vile vile unaweza kukamua mafuta na ubora wake ni sawa na mafuta ya mizeituni (olive oil). Bei ya Roasted and salted Macadamia Nuts kule Australia naona ni $18. Kule Kenya naona wanalamika utoroshwaji wa Macadamia kuja Tanzania kutayarishwa kwa kusafirisha nje.

    Upekuzi zaidi unasema macadamia yanastawi sehemu ambazo avocado, mapapai, na ndizi hustawi. Wakulima wengi wa kenya wanang'oa kahawa ili kupanda macadamia.

    Macadamias are tricky to grow, but they are proving to be a lifeline for black farmers in South Africa.

    Do you know why macadamia nuts are so expensive? It is because it takes five to 12 years for a macadamia tree to produce nuts (a good tree will still be producing nuts 40 years on); and the shell is damned hard to crack – so hard that it will break domestic nutcrackers. The first commercial orchard of macadamia trees, which are native to Australia, was planted in the early 1880s in New South Wales. Australia is still the world's largest producer of macadamias, accounting for more than 40 per cent of world exports. Other leading producers are South Africa and Hawaii. Bush pigs are among the few animals with jaws strong enough to crack the nuts; monkeys simply eat them from the tree when the shells are soft. But we humans, it transpires, require cracking factories. The other obstacle is that harvesting, which takes place in late autumn to spring, is typically done by hand, and pickers have to wait until ripe nuts fall to the floor. Mechanised shaking machines (used for pecans and almonds, for example), which dislodge nuts from the tree to speed up the process, cannot be used with macadamias, as the nuts mature on the tree at different rates. So first the macadamia nuts are husked (like coconuts, the nut is encased within two layers) and then air-dried in the shade for at least two weeks to reduce the moisture content and allow the natural oil to develop. Once the nuts are in the cracking factory, the challenge is getting them out whole, which involves careful drying at 40-43C to further reduce the moisture content, making the shell brittle and easier to crack.

    Finally, the nuts are sorted into 'styles' or grades of quality. 'Style 4' is broken pieces and 'style 0' is the premium: glistening and ivory-coloured, big like a brazil nut, but somehow a more satisfying mouthful to crunch. Macadamia nuts are high in fat – up to 80 per cent oil – but it is the right sort, and they are a good source of protein and fibre.

    ABOUT 150 km from the port of Tanga is Sakharani Farm in the Usambara Mountains. In 1946, the community in Ndanda bought a reasonably large portion of land in this area from an Englishman. This land was to be used for agricultural purposes. Its altitude of 1300m makes Sakharani suitable for growing different kinds of plants, namely: quinine trees, macadamia nuts, coffee, bananas and grapes. All these activities provide employment for many people. The community consists of about five confreres who, apart from farm work, engage themselves in pastoral work in the parishes of Sakharani, Soni and the surrounding outstations. Other activities include a small auto workshop, carpentry and gardening. Sakharani is also used as a rest house for many visitors as well as a meeting point for the young people who show an interest in joining the community in Ndanda. For more about Sakharani click here.

    Asante sana mkuu. Lazima nitafanya juhudi ya kufika huko Sakarani nijifunze vizuri wanachofanya. Hali ya hewa, "altitude of about 1400 ft above sea level"vinafanana sana na mahali ninapotaka kufanyia majaribio ya hili zao. Mara nyingi napenda kushawishi anagalau kila mwananchi apande miti michache. Unapanda halafu unaisahau isipokuwa unaitunza. Ikianza kuzaa manufaa kwa kijiji yanakuwa makubwa.
