Cajueiro de Pirangi, Parnamirim

#1 of 896 in Wildlife in Brazil
Producing over 60,000 cashews a year and boasting a circumference of nearly 500 m (1,650 ft), Cajueiro de Pirangi covers an area of almost 8,400 square meters (90,000 sq ft). With a size of 70 normally sized trees, this is the world’s largest cashew tree. Resembling a forest, this single tree’s unusual spread over such a large area was created by its outward growth. The tree’s branches, bending all the way to the ground due to their great weight, constantly take new roots. Though it was most likely planted in 1888, some believe the tree is actually over a thousand years old. Take a short break from your tour of the region to see and photograph this old giant.

  • That's what you hear, and you contemplate a handicraft market and things from the region in the part of your entrance. It's worth a visit!

  • Beautiful place! It's really big and beautiful the cashew tree!!! The guides help a lot and are kind. The place was very clean and organized... However, parking is a little bit scarce in high season!!! The trade in the surroundings is numerous, but it is simple... Lots of crafts and popular food! Great for visiting in the morning and on the way back, take a 5 km trekking to the restaurants of Praia do elbow!!! If you liked the information or consider them useful, leave your like!

  • I love this place. Very cool, contact with nature, the guides are kind and provide information about the cashew tree. There's a lookout that you can get the full view of the cashew tree. It is very close to the beach, so after the visit you can still take a little jump and take a sea bath. Around the cashew tree has a fair, with very diversified articles, it is worth checking out.
