Pirangi Cashew Tree, Pirangi do Norte

3.9
#1 of 464 in Wildlife in Brazil
Producing over 60,000 cashews a year and boasting a circumference of nearly 500 m (1,650 ft), Pirangi Cashew Tree 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.

    Location and preserved. I came looking for a cashew tree in a matter of time and I was surprised by the extent and understood because of being the largest in the world. Worth knowing and climb the observation tower to see be seen from above.

    Worth knowing. After the tour the natural pools of Pirangi we meet the largest cashew tree. Pay R $8.00 to enter. In 10 minutes you can meet. There's a gazebo where you can see the cashew tree from above. I found it interesting. At exit sell cashew juice and has a handicraft market. I ate a delicious Lobster Potpie.
