Cajueiro de Pirangi, Pirangi do Norte

#3 of 412 in Things to do in State of Rio Grande do Norte
Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice to see. Best plage to bus cahsewnuts 😉
  • This is an interesting place to visit and learn all about the cashew tree, fruit, and nut. Also not a bad place to shop for souvenirs in the shops outside the entrance. My only complaint was the viewing tower was closed, but they still charged full admission. Getting an overview of the tree is one of the main reasons for visiting.
