Fragrant pink flowers of a cashew plant. Blooming in mid winter, Rio de Janeiro.
my plant 10.4.03
got this from my friend.
The shell had been split open to take out the raw Cashew Nut. The raw Cashew Nut had been then split open into two.
The Cashew Apple came from a tree in Fruit And Spice Park, Homestead, Florida.
Flowers and young fruits. This is a large tree that is always blooming, but I have yet to see the fruits. I think that people are stealing them. Rio de Janeiro, late spring.
My seedlings came up in two weeks!
