What you need to know about cashews

Cashew, also known as anacardium occidentale, is known as a tropical climate plant from the family of gum tree (Anacardiaceae).

Cashew grown in Brazil was introduced to the world by the Portuguese.

The Portuguese discovered the cashew tree as they invaded Brazil. Portuguese sailors then carried cashew seeds from Brazil to the west African coast. Due to the nature of the cashew tree, it easily adapted to the west African coasts and began to spread rapidly.

The equatorial region and its surroundings are known as the region where cashew is produced the most.
