National Chocolate Covered Cashews Day, April 21

I never knew how cashews grew.  It's amazing!  They grow out of the bottom of a fruit.

Here's some information:

"National Chocolate Covered Cashews Day is observed each year on April 21st. The cashew is a tree from the familyAnacardiaceae.  Its English name comes from Portuguese the fruit of the cashew tree “caju.”  Originally native to Northeastern Brazil, cashew trees are now widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew fruit and nuts.
Surprisingly, the shell of the cashew nut is toxic, which is why the cashew is shelled before it is sold to consumers.  The cashew nut is a very popular snack with a rich flavor.  They are a well-known favorite during the holidays, but can be enjoyed anytime throughout the year.
