Cacoa Tree

About how many beans does a cacao tree produce in one year?

The cacao tree is the tree that produces the beans that make chocolate.


I'm not exactly sure how many cocoa beans a typical tree will produce each season. There are about 20-50 beans inside each pod. It would really depend on how many pods a tree produces in a given year to be able to really get a decent estimate.

There is more information about the Cacoa tree and the making of cocoa and chocolate on our chocolate history page if you are interested.
