Hernandia bivalvis— Grease nut

Linton's Edible Fruits
Update: 33 days 22hrs

Comments: - Hernandia bivalvis%u2014 Grease nut

Highly ornamental native tree that is becoming rare and is listed as endangered. It produces orange-coloured fruit capsules which contain a nut that is edible after roasting and was used as a bushtucker food.


Contrary to popular belief that it can only be grown in warmer parts of Australia, it grows well in Sydney and Melbourne where it fruits prolifically. There are a few large mature specimens that can be seen in my area.

Macadamia - Bush Nut (Seedling) 10/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 82 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Produces good crop of nuts each year. Handsome tree with beautiful pink flower racemes.

Top pruned the tree to half size so as to be able to reach nuts. This resulted in a much denser lower tree.


Fruiting Months April

Planted: 2004

Height 5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Fruit Harvest: 100 Fruit Per Year

First Fruited: 4 Years from Seed

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

When I Fertilise: Never

Pest Control:

Main problem are Rozellas - when young nuts are forming, they destroy every single one of the large crop of nuts. Must put netting over nuts within reach so as to save some of the crop.

Some nuts affected by macadamia nut borer.

Macadamia - A16 (Grafted) 1/10

Fiona11's Edible Fruits
Update: 162 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Maybe it is too subtropical to grow in a warm temperate zone.  Maybe it wasn't protected enough

It won't grow in warm temperate - should be listed as tropical / subtropical only

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions

Planted: 2015

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 2

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Question: How far apart should you plant them.  We have two.

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb
Fiona11 says... [157 days 1hrs ago]
Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.

Dwarf Coconut Malay Bronze (Seedling) 10/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 222 days 24hrs

Comments: - Bought from Daleys, I like this palm because Its a food producing Palm. Planted 15/02/2017, I dug a 3 foot by 3 foot hole filed with sand, compost, garden soil and mixed it well with my clay soil. As you can see it is sitting up off the ground a bit but will drop as it settles. When I got the palm sat it in seawead solution as instructed. Spent about two hours in the sink in the solution before planting in the mix outside. I put 9 liters of seawead solution over it again after I planted it.  The palm is in sub-tropical climate SE Qld, So will let you all know how it goes.

Macadamia 741 (Grafted) 9/10

Jimmy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 335 days 1hrs

quite happy with this type   didnt grow much in cooler months but both are going well early summer

2016 second year of flowering. harvested 8 nuts 1st year, this year both trees have a few dozen pollinated nuts.  a nice strong structure to the tree. only pest is thin film which develops over leaves which causes that spot to die. only a few leaves are affected so i never bothered with sprays. little care needed very happy

Macadamia 741 5/10

Update: 341 days 10hrs

Height 1 mtr (18/01/2012)

Height 1.5 mts (20/11/2012)

This is in the back corner of the garden . I have a path that goes around it so i will be trying to keep it pruned as a cylinder shape .

Too much shade and competition from next doors massive lychee tree . Macadamia is hardly growing . oct 2013

Because this is an Australian rainforest tree it needs a fertiliser with very little phosphorous . Less that 3% is good . Load the tree up with mulch , and because it is a rainforest tree it doesn't matter if the mulch is right up against the trunk . All plants need sun to grow including rainforest plants . When planting pretend its a rose and cultivate the soil well before planting . They have timid roots so needs a big loosened area to grow well . Excellent drainage in full sun .

Macadamia - Bush Nut

When I Fertilise: Spring

Question: I planted my macadamia tree in winter, and come spring have started to get brown patches on some of the leaves. The plant otherwise looks healthy at this stage. I can't see any sign of pests or anything on the underside of the leaves except for the same brown patches. What could this be?

Photo taken 2009, No rain Nov-Jan09, top dressed 09, No nuts yet. 

It's now Oct 2016 and have updated photo.  It been fruiting since 2013 (March) and have germinated the seeds (90% strike).  I'm amazed at it's growth burst after dormancy, sometimes 2m in one season.  This tree has been cut back every winter for scionwood.
