biggest cashew tree in the world in pirangi rio norte

The biggest cashew  (cajueiro) tree in the world stands in pirangi do norte in the province of Parnamirim in Rio Norte near the city of Natal. The total area of this 117 year old tree is about 8500 square meter. In the month of December and January , the cajueiro tree produces around 80000 fruits. Although the cashew tree is an important tourist attraction, it is also becoming a headache for the local residents. The braches are growing an average of 3 meters a year and are now overgrowing the roads next to the tree . Pruning of the tree will give problems to this cajueiro tree and the government is now looking for a solution.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
