This beautifully contorted tree is an old  cashew / caju tree of the Cerrado (Brazilian Savanna). The fruit has two parts: (1) The cashew nut that most of us know and (2) the cashew apple, which has a very unique slightly sour, fibrous, &  not too juice flavor that feels very refreshing.  We have now spotted half a dozen trees on our land already. The trunk of this tree is just over a meter high and the thick branches make it comfortable to sit and feel embraced by this majestic tree.
