Cashews grow on the outside of an edible false fruit, the cashew apple.

Did you know..?

The cashew nut is native to North-east Brazil. During the 16th century, the Portuguese took it from Brazil and introduced it into India (Kerala and Goa), Indonesia and Portuguese colonies in Africa such as Mozambique and Guinea Bissau.

The cashew tree does not require extensive irrigation or water-usage; it is environmentally friendly as the trees can grow in poor soils and dry climatic conditions. It is widely used in afforestation programs as it requires almost no maintenance.

Cashews are mostly consumed as a snack, raw, roasted, salted or flavored, in baked goods and confectionary. Cashews are also used as an ingredient in Indian sweets, savories and cooking.
