Cashew nuts are native to Brazil. They were discovered in the 16th century by Europeans. However, they had been used as a food by local tribes before. Initially, Europeans considered them inedible because of the poisonous skin, but the Indians showed that the nut itself is tasty and edible, just need to be peeled.
