Largest cashew tree in the world, grows 2 meters each year. You decently should plane a trip to see this landmark. Not visiting this place is like not visiting the arenas in Rome.

It is claimed to be the biggest cashew tree in the world, and I don't doubt it. There are bilingual English-Portuguese signs that tell the visitor something about it. You can try cashew fruit juice there, which isn't something you can find many places. There's an open air handicrafts market, too. Not worth a major detour, but if you're in... More

It's amazing to see how big is this tree. In the middle of a square, it never ends. It's expanding in all direction. there are also some nice monkeys to play ! A must see if you are i the area.

How can I say? It´s a huge tree! If you like nature I think that it´s a good spot to visit. And this place is in the way of the beaches of Natal's south shore. Stop, see, drink a coconut water and relax.

How this tree has gone on and how the community is all about keeping it and protecting it. I love stuff like this. There are little shops and stores around it as well with nick nacks and snacks. Really nice attraction.

The branches of the cashew rte by touching the ground, develop new roots. It has expanded in this way by covering an area of more than 8000 square meters and still is regarded as one tree. I found it interesting for it's uniqueness, regarded as the largest of it's kind in the world. A short distance from Natal, one may... More

It is a huge sprawling tree but disappointing as an attraction. The local tourist shops were quite good though.
