An image of cashews being grown has inadvertently sent social media into a complete frenzy.
Consequently, the snack of choice for many a party or pub-goer, is now the focus of a fiery discussion on Twitter.
It all started when one Twitter user shared her amazement at discovering how cashews were grown.
Admittedly most of us likely haven’t ever given it much thought before, so there was plenty of confusion at discovering cashews actually grow out of the bottom of an apple/pepper-looking structure, on actual trees.
Of course, the photo quickly went viral.

Wow! Who knew cashews look like angry, old men yelling at you to get off their lawn as they grow? They taste so much better than they look! https://t.co/EOMBqd7HAS— Bumble🐝✈✒🌻☕ (@Bumble6671) September 12, 2019

It looks like a cashew that grew out of the ass of an Apple— Rachel🎗 (@cmbisamazing) September 12, 2019
So who decided to eat the nasty-looking thing at the bottom instead of the luscious looking fruit?— I (@PSchauben) September 12, 2019
they look like grumpy old men— abby🎗 (@hellocmb) September 12, 2019
Some wondered why we didn’t eat the fruit part and what it tasted like.
What am I even looking at? Are cashew apples good? Why don’t we eat that part??— Jackson Hood (@JacksonHoodxxx) September 11, 2019
To help provide some context about this Internet-breaking news, cashews are seeds harvested from the cashew apple.
They grow on cashew trees.
Oh and while we’re on a mind-blown roll, just so you know, the cashew is not an actual nut either.
Totally regretting that nut pun in the first line now.
