Cracking the Mac Nut: Exploring the Fascinating History of the Macadamia | Transmissions from Hawaii 03

by | Apr 19, 2021 | Episodes

Often called the world’s most expensive nut, the macadamia nut is a delicious treat with a fascinating history. Though its origins lie in Australia, the macadamia was brought to Hawaii in the 19th century and since then has become one of the state’s signature crops, bringing in millions of dollars in revenue each year for growers. And then of course, you can’t forget about the chocolate covered macadamia nuts. But have you ever stopped to think about why the macadamia nut industry in Hawaii has developed so much? Do you know how the macadamia got its name? And what about its history before it arrived in Hawaii? On this episode of Transmissions from Hawaii, we’re answering all those questions plus many more.
