Do cashews or peanuts take more water to grow?

    Cashews, being a tree, take much more water to grow.  They need 250 to 500 liters of water per week, per tree.  Peanuts, on the other hand, need 600 to 700 millimeters of water for the entire season.  The timing of the water is the most important thing for peanuts.

    After some fun research and math, it appears that the weekly water use for peanutes is much lower than that of Cashews. Peanuts need approximately 1/3 of a cubic inch of water a day, while cashews need around 3 1/3 per tree per day, which means Cashews take a lot more water overall.

    I hope that helped!

    Comparing the water need of cashew and peanuts is an abberration. Cashew as a tree and perennial plant requires much more water than peanuts which is only an annual plant. However, peanuts grow only during the rains.
