Cashew

Caribbean Spanish uses marañon for cashew, but recently I saw anacardo is used. I know Caribbean Spanish uses unique words for some foods (patilla for sandía for example). Is marañon one unique to some countries from that region?

"Nuez de la India" in Mexico. I saw "anacardo" in a Spanish cookbook.

Es la primera vez que veo (en Google) esta semilla. Algunas se parecen a los 'arachidi' italianos, pero en Chile ni luces.

En el sur de Italia acostumbran a terminar un almuerzo o cena comiendo semillas: maní, avellanas, arachidi, nueces, etc.

Qué interesante, Pino. Google "dice" que en italiano se llaman "anacardi".

Los "arachidi" son los cacahuates ("cacahuetes" o "maní", dependiendo de la región), y decididamente no se parecen en nada. Las nueces de la India tienden a ser ligeramente dulces y el sabor es único. Como dice Poli, son muy recomendables.

Por cierto, un dominicano me dijo que en su país las llaman cajú (o castaña de cajú).

Angélica, tienes toda la razón y yo la confusión.
Escribí 'arachidi' pensando al pistacho. Pero no encuentro un chileno que me sepa decir qué es esa delicia que debería probar: el marañon.
No me daré por vencido.
Que tengan todos Uds. un tranquilo FINDE

Igualmente, Pino.
Si las encuentras en Italia, no dejes de probarlas.
