How are cashew harvested? Cashews come from the fruit of a tropical evergreen tree, which grows red flowers that turn into juicy cashew apples when they are ready to be harvested. The cashew nut is contained within the shell that grows from the fleshy stalk of the cashew apple. Traditionally, the process of removing the shell of the cashew nut is labor-intensive because mechanical methods were difficult to achieve the peeling effect due to the unique and varying shape of cashew nuts. Since the double shell surrounding the cashew contains urushiol, the same chemical found in poison ivy, which can cause inflammation during the peeling process. Therefore, before peeling, both unroasted and roasted varieties are first steamed to release any chemicals left behind from the shell, to make them completely safe and edible.
Shuliy Machinery independently invented cashew baking cooking steaming machine can create a space between the cashew kernel and outer membrane so as to facilitate the next step—to remove shell in a centrifugal cracking machine which breaks the shells open by forcing them against metal plates. To avoid high fruit damage rate, we’d better choose the advanced cashew nut peeling machine with quality, efficiency ensured. Cashew peeling machine Shuliy Machinery independently invented, developed is your best choice!
