Red Bopple Nut

A rare species is native to subtropical Australian rainforests. It is called among other names, the Monkey Nut, Red Nut, Beef Nut, Rose Nut and Ivory Silky Oak. Red, fleshy fruits with edible seeds appear in the spring and summer. Its strong, sweet smell has been described as too overwhelming by some. It is related to the macadamia, though not as popular nor as highly valued. Commercially, it is quite obscure, though it has an occasional use as an ornamental tree.
