Repstar has recently been appointed to manage Australia’s only commercial Cashew Plantation. Located 60 klm West of Mareeba, Cashews Australia have well over 50,000 established trees. The Cashew is a hugely popular snack, but very few people realise just how amazing this nut is. The tree is a close relative of the Mango and produces an edible ‘apple’ that has an external seed, this being the nut. There are toxins in the outer nut membrane, so each nut must be processed by hand before roasting or consumption.
