Cultural and historical curiosities about nuts

Cashew is a Brazilian fruit. Its flesh was used by aboriginals as food and the nut was used for preparing a type of wine. Aboriginals used the flowering season of the cashew tree to count years. The Portuguese took the plant to Africa and Asia, and today India and Mozambique export cashew nuts.
