This was the first Australian native food plant to be grown by non-indigenous Australians as a commercial crop. Seedlings from the original plantation near Alstonville were used as rootstock for grafted modern varieties well into the 20th Century. Since the clearing of the Big Scrub the genetic diversity of this valuable nut species has been reduced significantly. Very hardy and easily grown along most of Australia's east coast and even down into Victoria.
A north Qld native, this large rainforest tree has a spreading crown of large leaves. The brown fruit envelopes the highly nutritious nuts that are delicious roasted. Commonly used in Indonesian dishes, curry pastes and as a meat tenderiser. The nuts should not be eaten raw as the toxin in the oil can induce nausea and vomiting. The early settlers found that the high oil content of the nuts enabled them to burn with a smoky flame for up to 20 minutes.
Weed Warning: This large rainforest tree is a north Qld native, however it is a very vigorous self seeder and can cause concern outside
Excellent quality large fruit. Very low chill requirements and self-pollinating. A tough and vigorous bush. It has grown well in both sandy soils and heavier loams. The fruit has a wet scar, and is likely to become soft during very hot weather, meaning that it needs to be harvested frequently to overcome this.
