Chocolate harvest has begun!

yellow pod

Theobroma cacao seed pod or capsule (AAA battery for scale) harvested from the Tucker greenhouse Cacao tree on June 9th, 2017

Seeds inside of the pod encased in whitish pulp

I just placed the seeds in water and plan to let them soak for a week or more.  Next step is to cure the seeds in a dry hot place, then roast them, then grind them to make pure cocoa powder…..stay tuned!
