Mozambique 20  meticais-1994.jpg

Mozambique, 20 meticais, 1994.  Cashew plant.


The cashew is actually an indehiscent dry fruit (it does not split open when ripe) that is termed a "nut." The part we eat is the "kernel", which has had its hard shell and testa (skin) removed. The kernel is really a seed which contains a miniature embryo - gently pry the halves of the "nut" apart and you will see a tiny plant; the part we really enjoy eating is stored food for the developing plant. So, we can say that the cashew nut we eat is a one-seeded fruit.

If you look at a picture of a cashew on the tree you'll see a swollen part. This is the "cashew apple" (or false fruit) from which the "nut" protrudes. It is the swollen base of the stem that originally supported the flower. It belongs to the Anacardiaceae family of plants, which also includes the mango, the pistachio and the poison ivy.
