Originally there were four indigenous species in Australia, two of which are edible. Most cultivars of macadamia descend from these two edible varieties, which are either smoothshelled or rough shelled, and hybrids occur naturally in the wild.
Growers also differentiate the different varieties by whether they are ‘droppers’ which drop from the tree when ripe, or ‘stickers’, which need to be cut down.

Macadamias are the only native Australian crop that has ever been developed and traded as an international commercial food.
Although the first varieties introduced to Hawaii were intended to be used as ornamentals trees, by the 1950s they were an important commercial crop.
