Theobroma Cacao Cocoa Chocolate Fruit Tree, One 10'' tall TRINITARIO Medium RED Pod Theobroma Cacao Tropical Fruit Tree. Cacao has long been a mysterious and incredibly fascinating plant to grow and enjoy. The plant that is used to manufacture chocolate is known as Theobroma cacao and in Latin that means food of the gods.
Cacao trees have large glossy leaves that are red when young and green when mature. Once the trees are mature they begin to sprout thousands of tiny waxy pink or white five-pedaled blossoms that cluster together on the trunk and older branches. A cacao tree can become a productive fruiting tree in about three years.
