An interesting tree to admire. The place is well kept and is really nice to walk around the tree. You can also climb some steps and have a good look from the top. Not an expensive morning out. At the exit of the place you can try cashew juice. Not nice!

This was a very worthwhile side trip and worth the minor fee to get in. You must go up the tower to see the full size of this tree. It's amazing, would have enjoyed seeing it during harvest time. The guides provided useful information and enjoyed a taste of the juice.

It's an easy well-marked 20-minute drive from Natal to O Meior Cajueiro do Mundo, the world's largest cashew tree. It is enormous. Do not expect the trunk to be thick like a California sequoia, or tall like redwood. What makes it "world's largest" is that it is a single tree that is the size of a forest. The impressive tree...

I love cashew. But even if you don't even know this delicious and healthy fruit, the biggest cashew tree in the world is a must-see. 30 min from downtown Natal, this huge, horizontal tree takes a block size, surprisingly invanding the streets around, showing the force of Mother Nature. It´s cheap to get-in, it's clean and organized, it has a... More

It´s huge but I wouldn´t came back. It´s a big tree spreaded at a large place but it´s not so charming. I think it would be better to spend the time at the beach close to the tree.

You'll see a tree with an infinitely large stem. Climb to the viewpoint and see the size of the tree, it's where everybody goes to take nice pics.

You can`t have a real idea of the size of this amazing 800 square meters tree unless you go up the observation tower. It`s hard to believe is all one tree!

5 Reais to see something you can see from outside. And they serve you 10 mL of cashew juice. If I knew I wouldn't pay. The tree is beautiful and large but if you don't care you don't need to go there inside.

As you drive through the town of Pirangi you wonder if you will get to see the Cajueiro, when suddenly you realize you have been driving beside it for an entire city block. The tree has been immortalized and commercialized. At over 100 years old and still growing, the tree produces over 80,000 cashews in season (December), has an observation... More
