Your Cup of Hot Chocolate
The Cocoa Plant
The image above is that of a Cocoa plant, (Theobroma Cacao) with the cocoa fruit sprouting out of the trunk. Inside the pod, the cocoa comes in white beans. The tree is an understory and often grows under rubber trees. The flowers come in the trunk in clusters. Whether it is hot chocolate or chocolate ice cream, the world is always hungry for chocolates.
Munnar has the plantations of Cocoa all over, so that it produces all the three family drinks: tea, coffee and chocolate.
