Magnificent Macadamia Nut (Macadamia integrifolia)

G'daye, Hawaiian Style!

Yep, don't let anyone tell you differently. Macadamias are from Australia. Like many things in Hawaii, it comes from somewhere else.​

But that doesn't mean that Hawaii hasn't had an influence on the nut...no...not at all.​

As you can appreciate, the fantastic growing conditions found here in Hawaii, and on the Big Island in particular has made for a thriving macadamia nut industry. In fact, the macadamia is so ingrained in island life now, we daresay that it's as popular here in the islands as the peanut is in your (as Al Roker of "Today Show" fame would say) "neck of the woods."​

When you visit here, no visit would be complete without at least a macadamia nut cookie or so.​

If you are allergic to macadamia nuts, we extend our regrets.​

Tough on the outside, tender on the inside

Chances are, you'll probably not have the "pleasure" of cracking these babies open on your own. And you'd be well served to just buy them already prepared for you in the can, or embedded in chocolate.​

From the tree...these babies are - quite literally - a touch net to crack. A closer look at the picture on this website will reveal the tough, outer husk, which covers an even harder, medium-brown colored shell. Someday we'll tell you the story about how one of our friends fashioned an ingenious way to crack these things open using a floor jack, and garage wall and his car!​

Once cracked open though, the white, tender insides are well worth it.​

We sell both the untamed nut, as well as a macadamia nut plant that has already begun to grow. Pick them up here, and get ready to make Hawaii's "adopted" nut, a part of your family.​

Remember: Buy from the source. All the guys from EBay, Amazon and other websites that sell Hawaiian plants typically buy their products from us and resell them to you. Cut out the middleman.

Of course, with us, your satisfaction is guaranteed.

How to grow Macadamia nuts:

From a seed:

Soak the macadamia nut seeds in water for about 24 hours; then plant in media of peat moss and vermiculite.  Keep moist and place in a sunny spot.  It's a bit slow to germinate so give it at least six weeks.

As a plant:

Keep in bright light.  Keep temperature 60℉ to 90.  For best results, fertilize according to the instructions of a slow-release fertilizer with either a 2-4-1 or 1-1-1 ratio.
