Discover the versatile Aleurites moluccana, also known as the Candlenut Tree, Indian Walnut and Kukui. This perennial tree can grow up to 50 feet with wide spreading branches and pale green ovate leaves. The round nut is covered with a fleshy, oily kernel containing a thin embryo surrounded by endosperm, making it a key source of oil used in cuisine and cosmetics. This tree also has historical uses, such as providing light in ancient Hawaiʻi and being chewed by Tongans as a sweet-scented emollient during traditional funerary rituals. The Candlenut Tree is moderately resistant to fires and grows well in medium textured soils with moderate moisture use. Choose this commonplace tree for its multitude of practical applications.
