Indigenous to Polynesia, introduced to Hawaii.
Introduced to the early Polynesian settlers to Hawaii and Used by Hawaiians for oil, fuel (The nuts burn because of high oil content), as a relish (but don't eat too much it will give upset your digestion) and the seeds when polished make beautiful lei. The cold pressed oil of Kukui, in my opinion is one of the BEST oils for your skin!!! (esp. high in Linolenic and Linoleic acids).
