The nuts are sweet and can be enjoyed eaten raw, roasted, fried, chocolate coated, candied, made into nut butters, biscuits, cakes and pies. The two edible species M. tetraphylla (Northern NSW) and M. integrifolia(S.E. Qld) make up most of the commercial varieties below.

Why does this page say this?: "2 compatible plants (Pollination Required)", when all or many of the individual pages for each cultivar say just one is needed?

Macadamia Nut Tree

I dug up about 40 seedlings that were growing under a mature mac-nut tree. Only the short ones less than 6 inches tall flourished, taller ones failed to thrive. So smaller is better when digging up seedlings. Protect from gophers and rabbits at new site.

The Macadamia nut does not taste good if the nut is not stored for a long time i.e. up to about 1 year or even more for a sweeter taste?

SWEETER WHEN STORED : If the macadamia nuts are picked,dehusked and stored in the shade to dry out for 1- 6 months or more then they are much sweeter and better tasting . Mmmm Macadamia.
