Other people were in agreement about the price of cashews, with some saying it might impact their purchasing decisions in the future.
‘Doesn’t it change your whole perspective of buying a container of them at Costco? Madness,’ the Twitter user wrote.
Pictures showing cashews on trees sparked an interest from people online to learn more about where their favorite nut comes from, and it was discovered it isn’t even a true nut.
Cashews are actually seeds that grow from a tree, which are native to Brazil.
They grow in a shell that is then attached at the bottom of the cashew apple. People will pick the entire apple and then remove the cashew for consumption.

People online could not get over the discovery of where cashews actually originate, specifically what they look like growing from the cashew apple.
‘Is this a phobia? Because I’m 99% sure I just discovered that I have it,’ one person wrote.
Another person joked: ‘These are not cashews they are shrunken heads of poor souls who crossed the ancient witch’s path.’
With the information, this led some people to being concerned about the effort involved just to grow one cashew.
‘Yo, if one fruit produced one cashew, I really don’t wanna know what kind of science is creating them in mass quantities lol,’ a commenter wrote.
