It lives in an apple
And comes from the trees
Dangerous to grapple
And said in a sneeze

Chew as it's jumbled
With salt or with honey
Good whole or crumbled
But costs lots of money

What is it?

I'm gonna go with

Cashew.

It lives in an apple

The cashew nut actually lives under its apple, but close enough

And comes from the trees

Yup.

Dangerous to grapple

The shell of the nut is poisonous

And said in a sneeze

Ka-choo!

Chew as it's jumbled

"chew as" is an anagram of cashew

With salt or with honey
Good whole or crumbled

These are some popular ways to enjoy cashews (hadn't heard about honey roasted cashews before now, though)

But costs lots of money

Yeah :-/
