This highly attractive tree is native to the highlands of Far North Queensland and up to Cape Tribulation. It is hardy outside of its natural range and will grow well in subtropical gardens that have enough space for a large, attractive specimen tree. The blue fruits are up to 4cm long and contain a woody-shelled nut with a large, crunchy edible kernal. Ripe in spring.
