Kukui Nut, Candlenut Tree (aleurites moluccana)

Hundreds of flowers, small and ivory to white in color are hardly even noticed but the nut that develops is prized for its high oil content and its ability to burn for about 15 minutes giving it the nickname candlenut. Candlenut trees thrive in moist tropical regions. Considered highly ornamental it can reach 65 feet or more at maturity and have wide spreading branches.
