Did you know that cashews come from a fruit?
Yes, that old song by Tobuscus was correct, cashews do indeed come from a fruit. The cashew apple is an accessory fruit that grows on the cashew nut. Basically, the cashew apple is a hat that kind of looks like a red bell pepper. The cashew apple is edible, but they tend to perish quickly so most of the time when a cashew is harvested, farmers just leave the apple to rot.
