The History of the Macadamia Nut in Hawaii
The Macadamia nut is also called bush nut, maroochi nut, bauple nut and Queensland nut. It is also known as the Hawaii nut because these trees were first commercially grown in Hawaii. The main reason why Macadamia nuts are so expensive is that it takes much longer for the trees to bear fruit. If you grow the tree from seed, you’ll have to wait four or five years for the first harvest.
The Big Island of Hawaii is still one of the world’s largest producers of macadamia nuts and was once known as the macadamia nut capital of the world, growing 90 percent of the world’s macadamia nuts.? The macadamia nut tree is not native to Hawaii. It was not until 1882 that the tree was first planted in Hawaii near in Kapulena on the Big Island of Hawaii.? Macadamia trees are native to Australia, but grow surprisingly well in certain temperate zones.
