Macadamia Nut
Australia Crest

Most people think this popular nut belongs to Hawaii - but they are all wrong! The Macadamia nut is true blue Oz - in fact it is Australia's only native nut.

Macadamia


There are rough-shelled and smooth-shelled varieties but both are very hard to crack therefore generally the nuts are sold still in their shell.

The nuts grow on trees and fall when ripe. Market time Down Under is between February and May.
