You never know what to expect in Kuching sometimes ……

I was over at a warehouse in “Pending” area; the light industries/warehousing zone of Kuching and chanced upon this tress bearing apple-like fruits.

Upon closer examination revealed a cashew nut attached to the apple and I was thinking “this can’t be right! We don’t have cashew nuts growing in Kuching!”

So I picked a sample and showed it to some friends and they confirmed that it is a “cashew apple” (buah gajus) tree.

Now, if only I know how to extract the cashew nut from this…imagine that – my fresh supply of cashew … Yeah! 🙂
