Cashews are a kidney-shaped seed derived from the cashew tree, a tropical tree native to Brazil that is currently grown in a variety of warm regions across the world. While “raw” cashews are commonly available, they are not safe to consume because they contain urushiol, a chemical found in poison ivy. Urushiol is poisonous, and it can cause skin reactions in certain people.
