Cashew

Notes:

This is a Costa Rican variety that has a bitter pre-fruit that is yellow in color, (the fruit, of course being the "nut"). It is used to make a jam. I understand that other varieties have a red pre-fruit that is sweet...that's all I know...

Were you able to get a glimpse...not particularly good shots. The flowers have all fallen off on the ground, underneath. I'll let you know how the nuts taste!

Cool, Matthew, thanks. I see them all over the ground. I've just never seen a cashew like that. Always learning something on Noah!
