The Macadamia has attractive creamy pink flower clusters from August to September which then produce a rough shelled nut over a long period. Ripe nuts fall to the ground from March to July.
Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fatty acids. The nutritious seed is sweet and can also be ground into a flour and added to other cereal flours to enrich the protein content.
A large tree in forest areas but much smaller in other locations.
Plants cannot be ordered online for delivery to Western Australia or Tasmania due to interstate quarantine restrictions.
