The cashew varieties grown in Ghana are Brazilian, Tanzania, and Benin. The Brazilian type is the most common and is preferred mostly for its hardiness against weather conditions and diseases, superb quality, and high yields.

Over at least the last decade, one of Ghana’s most vital breadbaskets has been converted into cashew nut production to feed export markets. Bono East, Bono and the Ahafo regions – previously known as the Brong Ahafo region – are being transformed by cashew production. This growth has positioned Ghana as one of the largest producers of raw cashew nuts in Africa.
