Anacardiaceae

Each "thumbnail" image below is linked to a larger photograph.


Anacardium occidentale, cashew. The fleshy "cashew apple" at the base of the fruiting structure is edible. The seed is also edible and delicious when roasted, but care must be taken to avoid the juice from the raw shell around the seed as it may cause skin burns.
Mangifera indica , mango. Tree from India with a rounded crown and large, delicious fruits. One of the most commonly planted trees in Hawaii. The Hayden is probably the most highly prized of the more than 40 varieties grown locally. The bark is sometimes used in tanning leather and in making a yellow dye. Various parts of the plant are used medicinally. Some persons are allergic to mango fruits, especially the sticky resin that may ooze from the skin, which is not all that surprising because poison oak belongs to the same family.
Rh us san dwicensis, neleau, Hawaiian endemic.
