Every child loves cacao either as a drink or as chocolate. Having a Cacao Tree at home is a great experience for young and old, especially because the young leaves of this tropical plant are red-orange-coloured. The branches of Chocolate Trees are arranged in tiers. Cacao grows slowly and in our country rarely higher than 2-3 m. Its white flowers, too, are something special: they grow directly from the trunk (Cauliflory) just as its up to 30 cm long cacao-fruits whose peel is reddish brown when ripe. They contain the seeds that are called cacao- beans. They are fermented, dried, roasted, ground and are sold as cacao powder. Depending on winter temperature, the leaves are to a great extend evergreen. They are soft and as a young shoot red, later they change colour to light green and finally dark green. Chocolate Trees are notedly tropical plants that nowadays are primarily cultivated in South America. The humidity should constantly be above 70 % and temperature should not drop under +15 °C for a longer period, otherwise the leaves will get brown tips or edges.
