What Is Cacao?

Cacao, also known as Food of The Gods, is a special fruit popularly known for making chocolate.

The seeds found in Cacao pods can be used to make chocolate or can simply be consumed as is. The seeds  taste similar to unsweetened cacao nibs or the darkest chocolate you’ve consumed. The flesh surrounding the seeds has a sweet and tart flavor profile with slightly acidic hints.

Scientific Name: Theobroma Cacao 

Also Known As: Food of the Gods 

When/ How to Eat: Cacao pods have a hard-outer shell, they can be consumed by cutting into the shell with a serrated knife. You can determine if the pod is ripe by scratching the husk of the pod, if it is yellow or white then it’s perfect for enjoying! 

Where it Grows: We recommend you replant the seeds to grow your own tree. Cacao trees thrive best when planted in zones: 11 through 13. Cacao is native to Mexico and Central America.  

Disclaimer: If consuming the seeds, we recommend eating in moderation as they do contain small amounts of caffeine and Theobroma, a caffeine like substance that will surely give you an energy boost. 

Please keep in mind the weight of each box varies from fruit to fruit and overall is dependent on the fruit's overall mass, size and shape. 

Box contains 3-6 cacao pods; the variation in the quantity of cacao pods is due to the fact that cacao pods vary in weight and size, with some pods being tiny and weighing half a pound while other grow to be very large and may weigh over one pound.
