    $49.99

    There are only 2 items left in stock.

    PLEASE ONLY ORDER THIS 1 (ONE) WHOLE UNOPENED CACAO POD TO A HAWAII DELIVERY ADDRESS.
    Have the fun of growing your own CACAO trees from freshly collected CACAO SEEDS after tasting the sweet Cacao fruit inside your whole unopened pod.
    Cacao (Theobroma cacao, it means 'Food of the Gods') is the plant that Chocolate is made from. Please be ready to receive your fresh Maui grown Cacao pod on arrival.
    There are about 25+ fresh/live seeds in each mature pod if you would like to try your hand at growing this small fruiting shade tree. We found it very easy to start several beans in containers of good potting soil and eventually plant the seedling trees in the part of our garden that I call my 'Chocolate Forest'!

    Cacao can be grown in a container as a houseplant if you have limited space or it gets cold where you live.
    Cacao is considered an 'understory tree' it grows well protected in the shade under other larger trees. Please grow your young Cacao plants in the SHADE, dappled light is okay once they are older. I included a photo of several Cacao trees that we grew from seed grouped together about 10-15' high. Flower blossoms that develop into pods grow along the trunks + branches of this fun little tree.
    PLEASE NOTE, the state Hawaii (U.S.Dept. of Agriculture) does not allow any fruit pulp or soil to be shipped out of the state.
    *****Fruit pulp/whole pods are not allowed to be shipped out of the state of Hawaii. *****
