Believe it or not, Vietnam is the Cashew Capital of the world! Shouting – “Good Morning Vietnam!” It’s true, no-one on the planet produces more of these delicious nuts than the Vietnamese. Remember that for your next pub quiz, with cashews to hand! The reason they produce top-notch cashews is because they have superb growing conditions, simple as that. But, now it starts to get a little nutty, because cashews are quite an unusual nut. They grow from the bottom of cashew apples. The apple portion is called an ‘accessory fruit’ or ‘false fruit’ and it’s the nut beneath the apple that we eat. Also, the nut isn’t actually a nut! Well, not in the botanical sense of the word. It’s actually a seed. For freshness, we wait until the cashews arrive in New Zealand before we roast and lightly salt them (or not salt them, in the case of our Unsalted variety), then we lock in the freshness with our fresh-lock resealable bags. Then you get to enjoy the delicious ‘false’ fruits of our labour!
