Monkey Puzzle

Prohibited to AZ

(Araucaria araucana) This beautiful and unique evergreen from Chile has horizontal branches, each upturning at the end giving it a peculiar and striking appearance claimed to even puzzle a monkey! The tree produces small nuts in 8 inch diameter oblong cones, with up to 300 nuts per cone. They can be eaten raw and have a rich sweet flavor. Tree grows 25-45 feet tall. Plant two trees for pollination and nut production. Trees are slow growing in the nursery.

LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
