Due to quarantine regs and costs involved, Ishmael, Daleys can't send plants to some states of Australia, and won't send them outside Australian shores. As for purchasing them in the US, I can't see anyone more qualified to finding them than someone living there themselves.

The cost of Peanut trees (Streculia) is about $2.50 (25cm tall) at the TAFE nursery at Pimlico, Townsville. I doubt that they would send overseas. I have a few growing nicely in Townsville and Mingela (100km south west, bit higher and cooler than Townsville), planted one about a year ago and it is now a metre high.

Hi Merilyn,
I think he was referring to Peanut butter tree, (Bunchosia argentea) it's like a shrub/small tree. Here's a link:

What is a 'Peanut Butter Tree'? .. I thought that peanuts grew underground,& that peanut butter was made from them. (seeee, I Don't know everything, do I folks?!! :-D ) .. Wasn't Jimmy Carter a peanut farmer? He might have some or know where to get them. ... But "a Peanut Butter Tree?" ... I've never heard of That one before.

Yes actually named for the texture rather than any relation to its underground namesake.

Phil,, I haven't seen one or the fruit of this. .. So, is the texture more of the Smooth or Crunchy variety of Peanut Butter? & is the fruit also oily & salty?............ Very sorry everyone. .. But really, a "Peanut Butter Tree"? That could not be let past without some quip! ... (Do they also have Vegemite bushes? :-D )

While you are on the subject, did you know there is the perfect substitute for peanut butter? its called Freenut Butter & produced by Eskal. Anaphalactics & other people allergic to peanuts can enjoy this alternative because its made from sunflower seeds, but we just prefer the taste!

Hi Everyone, does anyone know how peanut butter trees fare under westerly sun? Any other suggestions for an attractive subtropical small tree or shrub suitable for a hot spot?
Thanks, Maria

The heat wave in Perth nearly killed mine (but reprouting from the base). I would go for a bit sunprotected spot or at least shadecloth protection.

No. I got it up to flowering stage, when I killed a shade providing tree in front of the plant (in mid summer). Reflecting back, I can't think of a bigger mistake I could have done!

NQ Grower says...
I planted my peanut butter fruit tree about 12 months ago and it came from daleys in its little box and now is taller than me! my first lot of flower started in September however I have so far only had 2 fruit (i lost a couple to ants) - looks like there are about 5 more starting to develop on the tree though. Mine is planted in full sun and high humidity which is fairly harsh up here - I do water it twice a week though. Re the fruit - it is definately peanut paste like in taste and texture - not exactly the same but very close.

We have them fruit in the nursery in their pots. Love the taste even if just for novelty factor they are great.

Considering that peanut butter calorie per gram beats chocolate. I wonder what the calories are for this little fruit. I can't find the information anywhere.

Yes NQ Grower, the texture is thinner than PB and the flavour is milder and sweeter than PB, but certainly can see why it got its name. The crunchy ripe stage tastes like sweet carrott. They get around 10000 flowers, but will only set a very small amount of fruit compared to flowers, but flower and fruit throughout the warmer months.In winter they can look a bit sick, but come good in spring. I cut mine back to a foot in winter so it doesnt get that leggy look like the one next door. Also keeps it looking lush and dense.

Are they tasty Trikus?

Do they like a lot of water?

I was thinking of getting one to put under an evaporative air con down pipe which leaks a lot of water.
