On June 13th we visited a Sugar Cane and Cocoa plantation near Miallo. I posted a photo of the Cocoa flowers a couple of days ago (see inset photo). This is a Cocoa pod which will be ready for harvesting when it it turns color. After harvesting, the seeds, which are embedded in a white pulp, are removed and they are the source of that wonderful stuff we know as Cocoa. Interestingly, the scientific name, Theobroma, means "food of the gods".
