Planting & Care
Fresh seeds germinate readily, so if you know of a cashew tree in your area, or have another way of getting hold of fresh seeds (that s the whole thing, shell and all, not just the nut!), you can grow cashew trees from seed. But be aware that cashew seeds don t grow true to type, meaning, the plant you get is not identical to the parent. (It may not fruit as much or taste as nice.)
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
- Cashews grow best in sandy soils, but sandy soils don t hold much water and are generally not very fertile.
- The trees will still do fine without additional attention.
However, if a good crop is important to you (read: if you want to grow them commercially) then you need to supply your cashew trees with additional water and fertilizer.
- Irrigate during dry periods, and fertilize the trees when they actively grow, as well as during flowering and nut development.
- (They will mainly need nitrogen and phosphorus, and possibly zinc.
