Mararu - Cacao

Cacao (Theobroma cacao) fruit are much more developed in the Mararu area than the ones at Bosque Santa Lucia. That's generally true for all fruits, especially those bordering the creek area. I guess most cacao seeds end up becoming chocolate, but when production is not that great, as the case of Mararu, they are eaten as fresh fruit. Not the seed, itself, but the sweet pulp around the seeds.
