Vertically integrated, from establishment, through post-harvest and chocolate making.

Nice.. We have 8 acres too but not all of it will be cacao.

Will you be processing your pods when you have them or sell them? Will you be making your own chocolate?

We've got about 8 acres on the north shore, and another couple on the windward side. We'll be planting more next year as well!

Thanks. Nice blog.. How many acres of cacao do you have planted now?

That's one of my mother trees. I'm on Oahu: http://kokachocolate.wordpress.com

Is this trinitario pure or a mix? Is this tree yours and are you somewhere in Hawaii?
Comment by Seneca Klassen on August 23, 2010 at 2:28am
Have to call it Trinitario, not that that means much.

What variety is this tree?

thanks Seneca and Clay...I think I must have got confused thinking that drought shocks some trees into producing more fruit.
Comment by Seneca Klassen on May 26, 2010 at 12:55pm
Exactly...in my observations of cacao here in Hawaii, a particularly wet rainy season has two major impacts: a bloom in midge population, and especially vigorous trees that can support a heavy load of fruit.
