"In 1959 the Kukui nut tree became the official state tree of Hawaii. Botanically it is classified aleurites moluccana. Since scientists have found traces of Kukui pollen in ancient geological deposits, it is assumed that the Kukui nut tree is indigenous to Hawaii.

Of all the Hawaiian trees, the Kukui has the lightest colored foliage. Silver-grayish powder on its leaves make it quite conspicuous in the forest and it is easily spotted. Trees grow on the lower slopes of the mountains, mostly in gulches. When cramped in narrow gulches, the trunks grow straight upwards attaining heights of 80 feet or more, with diameters of about 2-1/2 feet. Trees branch 30 feet or more above the ground and at the end of the branches small greenish-tinged white flowers bloom. These flowers, along with the trees distinctive leaves, are often seen entwined in leis.

The fruit of the Kukui is about 2-inches in diameter. The outer part of the fruit is a hard green covering about 1/4-inch thick when immature and as it matures it turns a dark grayish-black and softens. This portion of the fruit decays rapidly after it falls to the ground. Enclosed within are one or two hard, stone like, wrinkled nuts. When young the shell of the nut is whitish in color, but as it matures it turns brown, then black.

THE STORY OF KUKUI NUT OIL

Hundreds of years ago, Hawaiians discovered that when the shells were removed from Kukui nuts and the kernels lightly roasted that a clear oil could be pressed out. This was an excellent penetrating oil and when smoothed you can live your live better... i really dont know what im taling about!!!!!!!!!!! on the skin it soothed and softened sunburns and irritations. New born babies were bathed in this easily absorbed oil.

This treasured health and beauty secret has been rediscovered by Oils of Aloha® and is produced today in the same pure form as it was years ago. All vegetable oils are not created equal! Kukui nut oil contains very high levels of the essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha-linolenic. Kukui nut oil is quickly absorbed by the skin. The oil relieves the symptoms of dry skin, psoriasis, eczema and acne. Contains vitamins A, C and E as antioxidants.

KUKUI NUT OIL: QUICK FACTS

* A natural moisturizer, essential for healing dry skin * Quickly penetrates the surface of the skin (not greasy) * Expeller pressed, no solvents used * Incorporates well with other ingredients * Highly polyunsaturated oil with high concentrations of essential "fatty acids" * Supplemented with Vitamin E * Provides effective relief for the symptoms of exceptionally dry skin, psoriasis and eczema"

Malay name[edit]

In Malay, candlenut is called buah keras. I've never heard the name kerimi. It might be one of the many distinctions between Malay and Indonesian culinary terms. I've added the reference (anonymously, sorry; didn't notice that my login had gone away). Since I don't know how well spread the names are, I've just mentioned the name buah keras, but haven't distinguished between Malay and Indonesian usage. Maybe somebody else knows better.

Aleurites moluccanaAleurites_moluccanusAleurites molucanna has never been used as a scientific name for this species; only Aleurites molucannus and its various subspecies has been used. Aleurites molucanna is used widely on the internet, but it is incorrect. Please refer to the International Plant Names Index (IPNI; http://www.ipni.org) and search for Aleurites molucanna: it does not exist. In WP 'Aleurites molucannus' is redirected to 'Aleurites molucanna,' but this needs to be reversed. Thanks. Taxon (talk) 02:44, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Support – Not wrong, particularly about the move request, but there’s more to it than that →Australian Plant Name Index (superior quality compared to IPNI, to The Plant List, to Tropicos, and so on, per reference sources).--Macropneuma 07:14, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support move. Plantdrew (talk) 16:25, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Would support if - a section is added to Aleurites to explain why the gender is masculine. That is nicely explained by GRIN. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 21:02, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
