The botanical name for cashew-nut tree is Anacardium Occidentale and interestingly it belongs to the same family as mango and pistachio. Cashew seed and cashew apple come from a tropical evergreen plant – native to northeastern Brazil. This wholesome nut is majorly produced in Nigeria, India, Vietnam, and the Ivory Coast. The cashew tree is said to have been brought to India by the Portuguese sailors in about 1560. However, it was only in 1920’s that it started getting popular.
What makes this nut stand out is the fact that it is actually a seed, not a nut. Unlike all the other fruits that hide its seed inside the flesh, cashew apple lets its seed – cashew – hang from its bottom. This rather delicious seed is encased within a hard two-layered shell. The shell has to go through a vigorous shelling process – boiling and roasting – before the kidney-shaped nut comes out to be consumed by its fans all over.
Cashews aka kaju are consumed all around the world in a variety of ways. They come in different varieties depending on their kernel grade – W-210 to W-240 (210-240 kernels per lb).
