Hardy Round Leaf Chocolate Tree (theobroma cacao jaca)

SIMPLY THE BEST! Very Rare Round Leaf Chocolate Tree – This recently discovered variety has been found to be the most pest and disease variety of cacao, while being considered a fast grower and heavy producer. Highest antioxidant rich Chocolate bean in the world and you can grow your own! Harvest, ferment, roast and create wonderful culinary dishes in your own kitchen with homegrown cacao. Jaca like all understory Theobroma plants, produces fantastic quality cacao pods on the tree trunks starting around age 4. Jaca is a relatively small 20-25 foot tall tree when mature, with deeply gnarled bark and a sometimes twisting trunk. The leaves are round and pale green and rather papery feeling. It’s the unique shape of these leaves that make this one a rare and unusual species.
