The Cashew

The devil was convinced that he could create something as wonderful as God so he made the cashew tree. When he showed off his new creation, God asked, "How is it going to reproduce? You left out the seed." So the devil responded by sticking the seed, as an afterthought, underneath the yellow fruit.

The seeds of the cashew have toxic oils in them and must be roasted over fire to release them. It is a dangerous process likely accounting for the high cost that we see in the States.
