As a child in Papua New Guinea we would buy the fruit at the markets the locals were horiffied at us when we cut open the seeds for the meat, as the seed coat is highly corosive and burns the skin, they considered the seeds posinouse as a result.

I have heard that cashew processing in some places is a big problem with child laborers loosing the skin from their fingers.

My dwarf cashew is struggling, the leaves are yellow and not very healthy looking at all. I could have burnt the roots in it's young stage, so I've been vey careful with fertilizer ever since. It's now just starting to get some colour in the leaves so It appears the roots are on the mend. There is also a Super dwarf Cashew around if you look hard enough, but it's not grown for the nut.

LOL it is so easy to do I am guilty of it to, "twice as much fertalizer means it will grow twice as fast" And then burn the crap out of the roots and get a miserable sulking tree.

Tough going with a cashew though it is very tropical mabey in greenhouse you could get lucky.

Temp hasn't been an issue so far, and I now have them in my newly completed polyhouse. I'm fairly sure I burnt the roots when they were younger, so now I'm cutting back on the water and giving them a weak soluble feed through the leaves and seasol. There is new growth starting to happen and the leaves are slowly showing green again.
