Delectable macadamia nuts have a creamy, buttery taste that adds a subtle richness to everything they grace. These versatile and trivial nuts originated in Australia and were named for the physician and chemist, John Macadam, who discovered them. Most of today’s world supply of macadamia nuts is grown here in Hawaii. Growers first began cultivating macadamia trees in Hawaii in 1921.
