Abstract Studies in Dimbulah Queensland were conducted with five-year old cashew trees derived from seedlings to determine the variation in flowering and fruiting behavior of shoots located in different quadrants of the tree canopy and different planting locations in the orchard The northern and western quadrants of the tree canopy were found to produce higher total nut weights, nut number, total number of shoots and number of shoots with panicles than the eastern and southern quadrants No significant variations were observed in nut and apple characters Trees located in the border and poorly buffered trees produced higher nut yields than well-buffered trees in addition trees located in the border produced heavier nuts.
