Cocoa trees are abundant in Gran Couva, Trinidad, West Indies where there used to be large cocoa estates.
Inspired by Mother’s Day, I was going to post flowers. But instead I wanted to share this lovely cocoa pod. Most of the world’s cocoa is produced in West and Central Africa, Latin America, Indonesia and a little in the Caribbean. Most of the world’s finest chocolate is consumed, and it’s profits enjoyed and North America and Europe. Enjoy the photo, enjoy your day, and perhaps share a bit of chocolate with someone.
