We feel so fortunate to have cacao, banana, coconut, plantain and other tropical fruits growing on our property. Cacao is such an interesting fruit. Most people don’t know that there is actually sweet fruit around the seed where you get chocolate from.
You eat the fruity pulp first. And then you take the seed and dry it out. From the seed is where chocolate comes from and there’s a further process to convert the cacao seed into powdered cocoa and then into chocolate.
