Seeds of Cacao Tree Theobroma Cacao L. Family Sterculiaceae -
What we look for in Sustainable Cacao Seeds
Theobroma Cacao L. Family Sterculiaceae - are the seeds, contained in a cucumber-like fruit, of the cacao tree. The yellowish, reddish to brownish fruits (botanically speaking, berries), which are of similar appearance to cucumbers, are divided into five longitudinal compartments, each containing up to 10 seeds (cocoa beans). As the fruits approach ripeness, the partitions break down and the seeds are located around the central funicle in a whitish pulp with a sweet/sour flavor.
