The Story :
Macadamia ternifolia, or Queensland walnut, is a slow-growing tree native to eastern Australia. The tree is about 20 m high. Its dark green serrated leaves are persistent. The flowers are pink or white depending on the species.
Flowering takes place in spring in bunches of about 30 cm long. Each one will develop about twenty nuts. The nuts are covered with a green shell that will eventually split to release the brown shell.
The Australian Aborigines who called the nuts “gyndl” or “jindilli” traded this protein-rich nut with the first white settlers on the east coast of Australia who exported these nuts around the world.
Today, macadamia is naturalized in many countries including Kenya, Hawaii and South Africa where it is grown for its nuts, sweet and oily, consumed raw or roasted, as well as for its good quality wood used in cabinet making.
