Description Inclined to be a rather low broadly spreading tree, though sometimes tall. Most of the fruits are small and poor, but occasionally trees are encountered bearing fruits of very large size and fine flavor. There is also very variation in the size and quality of the nuts. Only carefully selected seed should be used for planting.
Locality Collected in the Botanic Garden of the Museu Goeldi. This is the Cajuiero of the Brazilians, the Cashew of Jamaica, and the Maranon of Cuba.
