Pirangi Cashew Tree (Cajueiro de Pirangi) Tours

At first glance, it seems as if you’re looking at an intricate forest— but this massive network of branches is actually just one cashew tree whose circumference measures 500 yards, producing over 60,000 nuts per year. It holds the Guinness Book of World Records spot for the biggest cashew tree in the world.

Covering an area of nearly 8,000 square meters and roughly the size of 70 normal-sized cashew trees, it can be difficult to distinguish between the original tree trunk and the rest of the tree. The massive branches extend sideways and eventually also take root and continue to grow across the land around it. Though its exact origins are unknown, it is believed to have grown due to a genetic abnormality and is over 1,000 years old. If accompanied by a tour guide, visitors are allowed to pick cashews right from the tree. There is also a large observation deck 10 meters high that allows for a panoramic view of the tree.

Practical Info

The Pirangi Cashew Tree is located in the district of Pirangi do Norte, Parnamirin City, in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. It is accessible from nearby Pirangi Beach. Admission fees of R $4 cover the maintenance of the tree.
