Cashew fruit is a juicy delectable treat with an intense flavour. There are red and yellow varieties available; typically consumed raw or in juice form to get rid of any strong aroma or aftertaste.  Mildly cooking the fruit may help eliminate this strong aroma altogether if that's what puts you off.

The seed of cashew fruit is kidney-shaped and about 2 to 3 cm across. It has an outer hard shell called the cashew nut that contains one single seed inside.

Growing Cashew Plants

Cashew plants thrive in both tropical and subtropical climates and can be found throughout India. Due to its drought-tolerance, homestead planting requires less upkeep than commercial plantations. Grafted plants will start flowering after 6-8 months. But these should be removed till two years, in order to promote healthy plant growth. 

A spacing of  7 to 10 metres is needed when planted on the ground. If space is an issue, grafted trees can also be pruned into small trees that can be placed into drums or other containers. Cashew plant can be pruned to maintain its shape and size. 

Cashew trees are grown for both fruit and nuts but primarily grown for their nuts.
