The Cajueiro de Pirangi in Pirangi do Norte in Brazil is the largest cashew tree in the world. It covers an area between 7,300 square meters and 8,400 square meters (around 78,000 to 90,000 square feet). Having the size of 70 normally sized cashew trees, it has a circumference of 500 meters (1,650 feet). It is now difficult to distinguish the initial trunk from the rest of the tree.

Here's a 360° panorama view of the tree.
