What are macadamia nuts?

Macadamia nuts have become increasingly popular in recent years, despite being the second most expensive nuts in the world, next to Brazil Nuts.

They are native to Australia, where they are also called Queensland nuts. Today they are grown all over the world.

  • Did you know? Macadamia nuts are never picked. They are harvested from the ground after they fall off the tree. They also have the hardest shell of any nut, taking 300 PSI of pressure to crack it open.

Macadamia nuts are the only edible fruit of the Macadamia genus. The German-Australian botanist Ferdinand von Mueller gave the genus the name Macadamia in 1857 in honour of John Macadam, a Scottish-Australian chemist, medical teacher and politician John Macadam who promoted their use.
