The Theobroma cacao (or cocoa tree) is the kind of Theobroma from which the best chocolate is made. The flesh is white and tastes sweet and sour. Unlike the Theobroma bicolor, this fruit is not so much eaten for the flesh, but rather be used for drying, roasting and peeling of the seeds, which is then ground into a chocolate pulp. It is a bushy tree and the fruits grow in clusters on the trunk. The tree can reach a height of 8 meters.
NOTE: Our advice is to choose for Express Shipping (extra fast delivery) for all countries outside Europa. These are very sensitive seeds and also a sensitive fruit pots. Also if you live on a Island of Europa and Portugal mainland our advice is to choose for Express shipping. Regular shipping is taking often too long for this kind of fruits or seeds.
We have a NEW THEOBROMA CACAO option: Buy cacao Pulp / Flesh with the seeds in it, only! But why do we offer this? Please read below:
- Due to new regulations, New import/export laws for whole fruits from our fruit farm, we cannot always deliver Cacao fruits.
The good news is that we have a new solution because WE CAN deliver the complete pulp of the Cacao fruits!
- Besides this, Cacao is also a very fragile fruit to ship. It is not always possible to see from the outside of the fruit whether the inside is still good. We have also had reactions in the past that the fruit was no longer 100% perfect on the inside.
- If you receive only the Pulp / Fruit Flesh, you know you are getting only 100% good seed quality and fresh flesh 🙂
We want to test whether there is enthusiasm for selling the Pulp/Flesh of a Cacao.
So only the Flesh / Pulp + the Seeds within!
The advantage is that you see what you are buying. The pulp will last longer in the vacuumed packaging and the seeds will not become mouldy.
Check it out! Choose the option as we just received fresh Cacao pulp!
