Monkey puzzle trees (also known as Chilean pines) bear small nuts rather than fruit, but yes, they can be eaten!
If you're lucky enough to own or have access to a nut-producing monkey puzzle tree, either search the ground beneath it for cones (the round, spiky things) or gently pluck one from the branches.

Monkey Puzzle Trees: Nut Facts

- Each cone contains about 300 nuts
- The nuts of the monkey puzzle tree are sweet and rich
- You can eat them raw
- Female trees need to be close to a male in order to produce nuts
The nuts should look like this, although they might be smaller if they're not fully-grown. You can still eat them, though—they just might not taste as nice!
