​The tree is small and evergren, growing to 10-12m (~32 ft) tall, with a short, often irregularly shaped trunk. The cashew is related to the mango. Both belong to the sumac family.

​Cashew is very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus, Copper and Manganese.

The true fruit of the cashew tree is a kidney or boxing-glove shaped drupe that grows at the end of the cashew apple Within the true fruit is a single seed, the cashew nut. 

In commercial nut plantations, it is most practical to twist off the nut and leave the apple on the ground for later grazing by cattle or pigs In Goa, India, the apples are still trampled by foot to extract the juice for the locally famous distilled liquor, feni.
