  Cashew Apple
The true fruit of the tree is the cashew nut resembling a miniature boxing-glove; consisting of a double shell containing a caustic phenolic resin in honeycomb-like cells, enclosing the edible kidney-shaped kernel.
The apple and nut fall together when both are ripe and, in commercial nut plantations, it is most practical to twist off the nut and leave the apple on the ground for later grazing by cattle or pigs.
In Goa, India, the apples are still trampled by foot to extract the juice for the locally famous distilled liquor, feni.

 Apple Fruit Thinning   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Thinning is the removal of a portion of the crop before it matures on the tree to increase the marketability of the remaining fruit and to reduce the biennial bearing tendency of the tree.
Folger in 1921 reported, "Once a grower has carefully thinned his fruit for a few years, he needs no further proof of the fact that this is one of the most important and profitable of all orchard operations".
Since fruit trees naturally shed some fruitlets during the thinning season, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish natural drop from a chemical thinning response.
