Chocolate World...

By Chinga
Cocoa beans are the seeds, contained in a cucumber-like fruit, of the "cacao tree", a member of the Sterculiaceae family. The main zones of cultivation of the tropical cacao tree fall within a band 10 north and south of the equator. Central Africa produces approx. 75% of the world's forastero cocoa harvest, while criollo cocoa is primarily shipped from Central America (Venezuela, Ecuador) and from Sri Lanka and Indonesia. The new history of cocoa dates back to the 6th century with its origins in the Amazon Basin. Cocoa was first brought to Europe in the 17th century in the form of a luxury drink. It was not until the 19th century that technology facilitated the roasting and pressing of cocoa beans which resulted in the creation of eating chocolate. Yum yum! Grin
