Buying Tips

Macadamia nuts are most often sold shelled—either raw or roasted. Look for well-shaped light-colored nuts. Those available in vacuum-packed jars or cans will stay fresher longer.

Varieties

There are approximately six varieties of macadamia trees that grow in hot humid climates. The round beige nut has a thick hard shell, although some varieties have been developed in recent years with a softer shell. Australia and Hawaii are the leading producers of macadamia nuts.
