Cashew nuts

 Cashew nuts Key facts Cashews are native to northeastern Brazil but are now grown in many tropical countries worldwide; as well as their use in savoury dishes you can also buy cashew nut juice! Cashews are not particularly high yield - a tree produces only 200-300 nuts per year, which could account for their higher price when compared with other nuts.
As nuts come, a cashew is not a particularly hard nut: its flavour is gentle and distinctly more-ish, and it lends itself well to spicy dishes. Indian and Chinese cooking use cashew extensively, and India is a major exporter.
