It may be unimaginable that a bright yellow fruit, such as cocoa, is the origin of those delicious chocolate bars that we enjoy so much. The first harvests of this fruit date back to pre-Hispanic times in Mexico. Among the pre-Columbian peoples, its grains were a symbol of wealth and since it began to be harvested, the inhabitants of those times claimed that it was a gift from the gods.Theobroma cacao is the scientific name of the cacao tree and means “food of the gods”. It has an average height of 4 to 8 meters and its fruits are elongated brown or reddish berries that contain 30 to 40 white, bitter-tasting seeds, of which about 500 are needed to produce 1 kilo of chocolate. It is harvested manually, so as not to damage the plant and, of course, they make sure that they are at the correct point of maturity.
