While many found it hard to believe, they came to terms with the fact that cashews nuts are the seed of the cashew apple fruit.
Cultivated mainly in Kerala, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and West Bengal in India, the nut needs to be roasted or steamed before consumption.
Many took to Twitter to share their disbelief about seeing a cashew nut on a tree.
Here are some reactions:
Now people want cashew apples!

I know. Doesn’t it change your whole perspective of buying a container of them at Costco? Madness.
