#400 Brasil...Thanks Rodrigo!

This irregular shaped stamp was issued in 2006 showing the World's Largest Cashew Tree.

Cashew tree,from the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae, is native to northeastern Brazil. Its English name derives from the Portuguese name for the fruit of the cashew tree, caju, which in turn derives from the indigenous Tupi name, acajú. It is now widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew nuts and cashew apples.
