Macadamia is a genus of trees native to Australia and is grown for its edible nuts. The tree is commonly known as the macadamia nut tree or the Australian nut tree. It belongs to the family Proteaceae and is related to other plants such as banksias, grevilleas, and waratahs.

The tree grows up to 10 meters tall and has dark green leaves that are oblong in shape, measuring about 10 to 30 cm in length. The flowers of the macadamia tree are white or pink and appear in clusters from late winter to early spring.

The fruit of the macadamia tree is a hard-shelled nut, which is surrounded by a fleshy husk. The nut is about 2-3 cm in diameter and has a hard, woody shell that needs to be cracked open to reveal the edible kernel inside. The kernel is rich and creamy with a slightly sweet taste and is highly valued for its flavor and nutritional properties.

Macadamia trees are typically propagated from grafted saplings as they are slow-growing and take up to seven years to produce fruit. The trees require a warm, subtropical climate with plenty of rainfall and well-drained soil. They are sensitive to frost and require protection during cold snaps.

Macadamia nuts are used in a variety of culinary dishes, including baked goods, confections, and savory dishes. They are also eaten raw as a healthy snack and used as an ingredient in many health foods. Macadamia nut oil is also highly valued for its culinary and health benefits.
