We lost our cashew tree that was with us for well over twenty years It gave us a lot of happiness. It was too late when we discovered that its roots were eaten by white ants. I have an obituary on it. But I am happy we have a tree growing and it has started flowering. The dead tree left behind a seed which is now showing signs of yielding.
A tree that gave us a lot of happiness is missed by us.

One of my friends told me all about her family's cashew tree. I would be interested in trying the cashew apples.

That is some good news to come out of news that is bad.

It was least expected and I am very happy that I can relive my experience with our tree that is no more.

As much as I like cashews, I'd love to have a cashew tree in our back yard. But they probably don't grow in our climate.

You are very lucky to have fresh cashew nuts. I love cashews and would love to have a cashew tree.

You should plant one. They yield within three years of their planting.

It's sad to hear an old tree die, especially a tree that has accompanied you for so many years. Glad that it has left a seed for you, and it seems like it's returning to you soon. Hope the white ants have been all chased away.

We are vigilant these days and have a chemical to get rid of these termites.
