How are cashews grown?

Cashew nuts are full of proteins, carbohydrates, and dietary fibre. The consumption of cashews is popular in most of the countries in the world.

Cashews are grown on a tropical evergreen tree which produces the cashew seed and the cashew apple. They are grown in a shell that is attached to the cashew apple. While, the cashew apple is attached to the tree branch. Once the apple is ripe, the cashew apple is pulled out of the branch. Further, the nut is removed and dried as the cashew apple in itself is juicy. The shell is then frozen and boiled for it be ready to be eaten as a nut. The cashew apple is light red and light yellow in colour. It can be turned into a sweet drink or jams. According to a report, about 6 per cent of the global population is allergic to cashews which can trigger either mild or life-threatening allergic reactions.
