Admittedly most of us likely haven’t ever given it much thought before, so there was plenty of confusion at discovering cashews actually grow out of the bottom of an apple/pepper-looking structure, on actual trees.

Of course, the photo quickly went viral.

Some wondered why we didn’t eat the fruit part and what it tasted like.

To help provide some context about this Internet-breaking news, cashews are seeds harvested from the cashew apple.

They grow on cashew trees.

Oh and while we’re on a mind-blown roll, just so you know, the cashew is not an actual nut either.

Totally regretting that nut pun in the first line now.
