Latin: 
Macadamia

Macadamia trees are native to Australia. The trees bear clusters of small white flowers and round edible nuts. They were named after an Australian chemist, John Macadam who died in 1865. Commercial cultivation started in 1858 and the trees were introduced into Hawaii in 1882. Macadamias are marketed as snack nuts and are used as an ingredient in chocolate confectionery. The principal producing countries are the USA (Hawaii), Australia and Kenya.
