Every child loves cocoa as a drink or chocolate. Having a Cacao Tree at home is a great experience for young and old, especially since the young leaves of this tropical plants are attractively red-orange colored. The branches of Cacao Trees are arranged in tiers. Cacao Trees grow slowly and rarely reach more than 2-3 m in our country.

They contain the seeds, which are called cocoa beans. They are fermented, dried, roasted, ground and sold as cocoa powder. The leaves are soft and red when young and turn to light to dark green when mature. Cacao trees are true tropical plants, which nowadays are cultivated mainly in South America.
