Where Do Cashews Come From?

In this new video, I show you the amazing cashew fruit! This is how people eat cashews in the tropics: eat the juicy fruit, and throw away the cashew!

Not everybody loves cashew fruit, but to me it’s one of my favorite treats which I eat fresh, in season (March until summer), about once a week at the farmer’s market in Costa Rica when I’m there for the winter.

Cashew fruit juice is also popular in Brazil everywhere.

In Malaysia, young cashew leaves are sometimes eaten in salads.

Also, in case you missed this video, here’s a 10-minute excerpt from a seminar I gave last September in Calgary, entitled “High Fruit or High Fat?”. The full presentation can be found at:, including the complete slides used in the one-hour presentation.
