Brazilian cacao or cupuassu (Theobroma grandiflorum)

Brazilian Cacao Fruit (Theobroma grandiflorum)

Brazilian cacao, or cupuassu, is a large relative of the common cacao.  The pulp is sour and very aromatic, and is used to make a juice which is similar to soursop juice.  Each fruit has 20-30 viable seeds.  The pulp needs to be cut from the seeds with sharp scissors.  The seeds can be planted or roasted and ground to make homemade "chocolate", called cupulate in Brazil.  Please note that these fruits fall from the tree when ripe, so customers will be on a waiting list for available fruits, which will be shipped when ready.

Brazilian Cacao Fruit (contains 20-30 seeds)  $16.99
(waiting list only, fruits should be available in late fall/early winter)
