Aborigines in Australia called macadamia nuts “gyndl” or “jindilli”. They traded this protein-rich nut with the first European colonists who arrived in Australia, who then exported them all over the world. Today, macadamia trees are naturalised in countries including Kenya, Hawaii and South Africa. They are grown for their wood and nuts, which are eaten raw or roasted.
The macadamia tree, sometimes called the Queensland nut tree, is a large tree which can reach 15 metres in height. This slow-growing tree produces sweet, oily nuts after 5 to 7 years. The tree reaches maturity after about 15 years.
