According to ancient legend, giving a gift of cashews brings good luck and happiness, both to those who give and receive them. One thing is certain - the folks on your gift list will be happy, indeed, with a gift of our Jumbo Cashews.
We select only the finest nutmeats - not only remarkably large, but rich with natural flavor. Gently roasted with no salt added, our cashews are fresh and flavorful from the first bite to last. Make sure you keep some on hand for those times when unexpected guests drop in during the holidays!
The cashew is a large evergreen tree that reaches heights of 30 - 40 feet. The nut is kidney shaped, the size of a large bean, and borne beneath a yellow or orange fruit called a cashew apple. The outer covering of the fruit contains an extremely caustic oil that must be burned off before the nut can be touched. The kernels are then boiled or roasted again, and a second shell is removed.
