One of the most popular nuts in the world, cashews are loved for their sweet, creamy flavour, and their ability to be added to a variety of dishes and cuisines.

Believed to have originated in Brazil and then introduced in other countries by the Portuguese, cashews grow on the underside of the cashew apple, which itself hangs from the very tall cashew trees.
