During the Easter, I visited my partner's parents. They have a Macadamia tree. The tree seems to be quite healthy and produces good quantity of fruits. Often you get Macadamia nuts from the shops for more than $30 per kg.
Macadamia is a native Australian fruit. It is crunchy like other nuts and has a little sweet and creamy taste. Yumm
Here are the home grown Macadamia.
And here is the old nutcracker bought 20 years ago.
It takes a lot of effort to get the kernel.
We visited Yarramalong Macadamia Nuts Farm. The grower told us that it takes 7 years before the tree fruits. We tried to buy one of the nutcracker for the nuts grown at home but they were sold out :(.
The new nutcracker they have looks like this. It takes no effort to crack the nuts with this tool. We have to wait for them having the stock again.
