Terminalia kaernbachii produces a very high quality nut, somewhat similar to the almond. Its natural distribution is confined mainly to the south side of the island of New Guinea and some other islands. It bears poorly near the ocean, but does well in inland locations from very low altitudes up to an altitude of 1100 m.

The seed has an excellent, mild, almond-like flavour, it can be eaten raw, roasted or baked.
