Bunya Nuts HomeThis is a featured page

Botanical name: Araucaria bidwillii This plant is a large tall tree to 40 m high with a straight trunk, prickly leaves, and separate male and female flowers. The female cones, up to 300 mm long and weighing up to 10 kg, contain the edible seeds. A large harvest occurs approximately every three years, January to March.
Bunya pines are majestic trees towering above some rainforests in Queensland. The football-sized green bunya pine cones are hidden in the tree canopy. Mature trees at 12-15 years produce cones with crops being exceptionally good every two to three years. The mature cone weighs 5-10 kilograms and contains between 30 and 100 nuts. The cones will fall from the tree when mature and should be harvested and frozen or processed within a week.
