Bunya Nut

Warning I have a bunya nut tree in my yard, it is around 30mtrs tall. It drops pods every year from January to early March. These pods fall from the top of the tree and weigh from 5 - 10Kgs each. They drop without warning and are dangerous. | David Stephens - Beaudesert, Qld 28-Mar-2018

Thought this piece from the permaculture founder sums it all up. http://holmgren.com.au/reverence-bunya-bunya/ | Rick Tanaka - Hepburn, VIC 05-Dec-2014

Bunya Nut

This is the ultimate aussie tough tree. Rabbit and roo proof. Planted it in our wood heap. Watered it for first 2 weeks and that was all. So far it has withstood 47 degree heat and -6 cold and still going strong. I can't say enough good things about them | Deb Bond - Roma, QLD 10-Nov-2014

Araucaria bidwilli - Bunya Nut

Planted in a large pot on the verandah. Drought tolerant but prefers regular deep watering. I give it crushed rock minerals and citrus fertilizer and I can't stop it growing. Regular pruning in width and height have not stopped the tree at all. | Grant Bates - Craigieburn, VIC 30-Jun-2014

Monster of a tree. Keep well away from house, but makes excellent windbreaks on local farms. Keep double fenced to keep cattle out in nut fall season. Very well suited to local area

Bunya Nut 10/10

PhilippafromDerbyWA1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3310 days 10hrs

Comments: -

I planted a bunya nut of this size about 20 years ago in NSW on a creekflat which is now my sisters property. It stands 25m high and is magnificent. So I had to plant one here on our property for sentimental reasons. It  also has an edible nut which is delicious.

This tree is another plant from Daleys from last year. It is planted near my fenceline in full sun. We are half way through our long hot dry so it is on a dripper and is watered dailey. We are fortunate to have bore water as without it I would not have half the garden that I do. It is doing well and already a haven for spiders and such that build their webs close to the trunk as the spikey leaves keep the predators at bay.

Planted: 2010

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: No
