While most love to munch on the sweet and crunchy nut native northeast Brazil nut, not many know how cashews are really grown.
Eaten on its own, used in recipes or processed into cashew cheese and butter, the cashew is a tropical evergreen tree that produces the cashew seeds. But it also produces the lesser known 'cashew apple'.
