Plain, salted, roasted or blended, there are many forms in which cashews can tantalise your taste buds. Though most love taking a bite out of the dry fruit, there are only some who have a clear idea about how they are grown. And, Twitter user Colleen Ballinger wasn’t one until recently.
“I was today years old when I learned that this is how cashews grow,” wrote Ballinger and shared an image of some raw cashew seeds hanging from cashew apples.

A few, however, were left laughing out loud. It’s because they tweeted that one of the cashew seed in the image resembles an “angry face.”
