Botanical Name: Macadamia tetraphylla
This was the first Australian native food plant to be grown by non-indigenous Australians as a commercial crop. Genetic diversity of this valuable nut species has been reduced significantly through land clearing. Very hardy and easily grown along most of Australia's east coast and even down into Victoria.

Customer Comments on Macadamia Bush Nut
Macadamia Bush Nut
They should cope with Melbourne cold, but may want supplemental water. Mine have survived -3C without protection or treatment. They are slower growing in the cold, but cope with 'mild' frost! | B - Trentham East, VIC 04-Jul-2017
