Ever thought of where the humble cashew nut comes from?
Perhaps the origins of the cashew has never even crossed your mind, but alas, on this Thursday morning, prepare to be amazed.
Firstly, they grow on trees. That's right. Trees.
Not only that, but they are attached to a pepper/ apple-like structures which suspends them from the branches.

The picture also left others wondering what the fruit itself tastes like and why we don't eat it:
What am I even looking at? Are cashew apples good? Why don’t we eat that part??— Jackson Hood (@JacksonHoodxxx) September 11, 2019
And for the final shocker?
Cashews aren't even nuts!
Technically, cashews are seeds harvested from the cashew apple, produced by cashew trees.
