Macadamia (M.intergrifolia, M.tetraphylla)

Named by the botanist Ferninand von Mueller in honour of his friend Dr John Macadam of Melbourne. Macadamias are native to south east Queensland and north eastern New South Wales, growing in rain forests, in moist places and along stream banks.

Macadamia nuts have a very hard seed coat enclosed in a green husk that splits open as the nut matures. Macadamias are large, spreading evergreen trees reaching 15 to 20 metres high and almost as wide.

The flowers are about 1cm long, are perfect but incomplete in that they have no petals, but four petaloid sepals, M.intergrifolia has creamy white flowers borne in clusters 15 to 30cm long, while the flowers of M.tetraphylla are cream-coloured or pink, borne in clusters up to 15 inches long. Macadamias can self pollinate, also wind may play some role, but bees apparently are the major agent in pollination. Cross pollination by hand has been shown to increase nut set and quality.
