Anacardium humile Seeds
Anacardium humile, also known as the Dwarf Cashew or Monkey Nut, is a plant native to South America, particularly found in countries like Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. This small to medium-sized tree produces distinctive cashew nuts, smaller than those of the commercial cashew tree, enclosed in a greenish-yellow shell. These nuts are edible and are cherished as a local delicacy.
The plant is well-suited to dry, sandy soils and plays a vital ecological role, offering shade and habitat in arid regions. Indigenous communities have traditionally used various parts of Anacardium humile for food and medicine, and it holds cultural significance in some regions. Conservation efforts are crucial to protect this species and its contributions to local ecosystems and traditions.
