mellow yellow Monday:cocoa pod
This is where chocolate comes from. Inside the cocoa pod are beans which are processed to make yummy chocolate. But when the beans are extracted and dried, the smell is very bad. I have seen them in Malaysia. My grand dad used to grow them.
It is amazing how something so vile smelling like puke can taste so good when it is processed.
This tree grows in the winter garden at the Auckland domain.
