Grow your own chocolate with 3 cocoa trees

Who doesn't love chocolate ?
Cocoa is tropical plant native to South America, although it is grown in parts of Central America, Africa, India, and the South Pacific. It is a plant that needs a hot and wet environment to flourish. Prefers a protected part shade position for the first few years.
The tiny pinkish flowers appear in cauliflorous clusters at former leaf axils that in previous seasons sprouted leaves. The flowers are rather short-lived, lasting only for a day and their fertility lasts only from sunrise to sunset of that day.The seeds are the most valuable part of the plant as they provide the source material for what eventually is to become chocolate. Mature trees start to produce fruit after about five years.
After the beans are removed from the pod, they are left to ferment for 7 days. Fermentation kills the seeds and enhances the development of the chocolate flavor.
We also have wholesale numbers on cocoa available.

Excellent experience

11 April 2018
My experience with El Arish Tropical Exotics has been excellent. Ordering was easy and the plants arrived safely and alive, which we all know is a concern when buying living plants online. They arrived healthy and bigger than I was expecting. It is now 2 weeks after re-potting and they are thriving. I am one very satisfied customer and I will be returning in the future to buy more plants. Thank you El Arish for making this experience so easy and painless!
