small Australian tree with racemes of pink flowers; widely cultivated (especially in Hawaii) for its sweet edible nuts.
They are small to large evergreen trees growing to 2–12 m tall. The leaves are arranged in whorls of three to six, lanceolate to obovate or elliptical in shape, 6–30 cm long and 2–13 cm broad, with an entire or spiny-serrated margin. The flowers are produced in a long, slender, simple raceme 5–30 cm long, the individual flowers 10–15 mm long, white to pink or purple, with four tepals. The fruit is a very hard, woody, globose follicle with a pointed apex, containing one or two seeds.
and the fruit is a oil source
I always thought it was a hawaaii native...
Macadamia integrifolia. I have seen this tree in full bloom at Tropical Botanical Research Institute, Trivandram, when I visited that institute for a seminar. Link : http://ntbg.org/plants/plant_details.php?plantid=7260
