Theobroma cacao,Chocolate

Theobroma cacao with pods growing with a Croton 
 This is a true tropical tree requiring minimum temperatures of between 18C-21C to do well so it is mainly grown in the top end of the country. However most botanic gardens including the one in Wollongong have a tree in their glasshouse collection so you can see this fascinating plant up close.
