What type of nut is this ?

    1 responses

Roy starts with ...
Can anyone identify what type of nut this is ?
The tree looks exactly like a macadamia to me (i.e. leaves, blossoms, etc), but the nuts that are now forming in the juvenile stage look very different from what I have seen on other macadamias.

It looks like a Hakea seed pod. Its in the same family as Macadamia ( Proteaceae ), but inside there is a small chamber with small seed. Pods usually open after fire, so are thick walled to protect the seed.
