Cajueiro de Pirangi, Parnamirim

4.3
#1 of 889 in Wildlife in Brazil
Producing over 60,000 cashews a year and boasting a circumference of nearly 500 m (1,650 ft), Cajueiro de Pirangi covers an area of almost 8,400 square meters (90,000 sq ft). With a size of 70 normally sized trees, this is the world’s largest cashew tree. Resembling a forest, this single tree’s unusual spread over such a large area was created by its outward growth. The tree’s branches, bending all the way to the ground due to their great weight, constantly take new roots. Though it was most likely planted in 1888, some believe the tree is actually over a thousand years old. Take a short break from your tour of the region to see and photograph this old giant.
