Theobroma cacao (chocolate). The first pod harvested from my cacao trees, grown from beans given by the indigenous Guna people (San Blas Islands, Caribbean). The scientific name translates to “food of the gods,” and beans were used as currency by the ancient Mayans and Aztecs. Panels: pod with vanilla orchid vine; white pulp around the beans (fermented to make chocolate); cacao in 3 forms: bean, cocoa, refined chocolate. 1 pod = ~25 beans = ~1 chocolate bar
