Which division does cashew belong to?? And why??
(In cashew, the seed is not enclosed within the fruit. So it should belong to division Gymnosperm.
But I've heard that all nuts belong to division Angiosperm.)

The cashew belongs to the group angiosperms. This is because, the cashew tree produces flowers which are absent in gymnosperms.
The Cashew Apple is actually not a true fruit but the pedicle or base of the cashew flower. The fruit of the cashew tree is an accessory fruit and termed as pseudocarp or false fruit. The true fruit is actually the cashew nut.
