The cashew (Anacardium occidentale; syn. Anacardium curatellifolium A.St.-Hil.) is a tree in the flowering plant
family Anacardiaceae. The plant is native to northeastern Brazil. Its English name derives from the Portuguese name
for the fruit of the cashew tree, caju, which in turn derives from the indigenous Tupi name, acajú. It is now
widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew "nuts", Brazilian nuts or cashew apples.
