What do you get when you combine natural sweetness with a raw, earthy flavor? The macadamia nut, of course! From white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies to specialty coffee beverages, the uses for this tenderly flavored nut are limitless. Also known as the “Queen of Nuts,” macadamias recently celebrated their national appreciation day (September 4), and they enjoy incredible popularity throughout the world.
If you think that we love macadamias here in America, you haven’t seen the love for them in Australia. In fact, Australia produces approximately 40 percent of the world’s supply of macadamias, with other production locations in Hawaii, California, Israel, and South Africa. Because the nut requires warmer climates, they’re not suitable for growth in many European counties.
Before you go nuts celebrating this flavor in your favorite beverages, let’s soak in some fun facts about this delicious treat:
- Macadamias grow on trees that can grow up to 40 feet tall and live over a century. Each tree will produce 44 pounds of nuts annually.
- In nature, the only other creature that enjoys the nut are Hyacinth Macaws – or really, really big parrots. They crack the nuts open with their mighty beaks for the buttery treat inside.
- Of all the nuts in existence, macadamias are the hardest to crack. Their shells are strong and are the main reason they’ve only come into commercial production recently.
