Cashew (Anacardium occidentale), tropical American tree of the sumac family cultivated in Africa and India. It grows up to 40 ft (12 m) high and bears a kidney-shaped nut in a hard covering underneath a fleshy edible “pear,” which can be made into “cajee” wine. The nuts are roasted, and the oil surrounding each nut can be used in cooking.
