Ripe cashew nut

Ripe cashew nut. Image 2 of 2. Native to South America, the cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is now widely cultivated throughout the tropics. Cashew trees produce a fruit, known as an apple (centre), and a nut (lower centre). The nut forms before the fruit swells and ripens, which takes two months. Once harvested, the fruit is often discarded in favour of the nut, although it can be used to make jellies, jams and juice. The nut must be removed from its shell with care, as the shell contains an allergen that can cause dermatitis. Cashew nuts are used in a variety of sweet and savoury recipes. Photographed in Grenada. See B790/237 for an unripe cashew nut

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a ripe cashew nut, revealing the fascinating journey of this tropical delicacy. Native to South America, the cashew tree (Anacardium occidentale) is now cultivated extensively throughout the tropics. The tree produces both a fruit and a nut, with the nut forming before the fruit swells and ripens over two months. Once harvested, the focus often shifts to extracting the precious nut from its shell due to its wide range of culinary applications. However, it's important to handle this process with care as the shell contains an allergen that can cause dermatitis. The discarded fruit still holds value in its own right as it can be transformed into delectable jellies, jams, and juice. This highlights nature's ingenuity in utilizing every part of a plant for various purposes. Cashew nuts have become indispensable ingredients in both sweet and savory recipes worldwide. From mouthwatering desserts to flavorful curries and stir-fries, these versatile nuts add richness and texture to countless dishes. Photographed against the vibrant backdrop of Grenada - known for its lush vegetation - this image captures not only the beauty but also sheds light on how agriculture plays a vital role in sustaining communities around the world.
