Tropical places; for example, I saw them growing in south Thailand. This is a first-person answer from someone who hasn’t googled a better one. Don’t let the joking responses get you down, @Storms.

@susanc Thanks; I tend to give non-serious answers for my own amusement here as well so I have to be able to handle it myself.

Cashews were discovered in Brazil in 1578, and later brought to India to help with soil erosion.
