The cacao fruit is a fascinating and delicious fruit that is native to Central and South America. It grows on the cacao tree and is harvested when fully ripe. Here is a description of how to eat it, when to know the fruit is ready to eat, and how to store it:
How to Eat: To eat a cacao fruit, start by cutting it open with a sharp knife. Inside the fruit, you will find a white pulp that surrounds the seeds. The pulp is the edible part of the fruit and has a sweet, tangy flavor that is reminiscent of citrus fruits. You can eat the pulp directly by scooping it out with a spoon or by sucking it off the seeds. The seeds themselves can also be roasted and processed into chocolate.
When to Know the Fruit is Ready to Eat: The cacao fruit is ready to eat when it turns from green to yellow, orange, or red. The fruit should be plump and slightly soft to the touch. You can also tell if the fruit is ready to eat by shaking it gently; if you hear the seeds rattling around inside, the fruit is ready.
How to Store: Cacao fruit should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. If you need to store it for longer periods, you can refrigerate it for up to a week. It's important to note that the fruit will start to ferment and spoil quickly, so it's best to eat it as soon as possible after harvesting.
History and Other Uses: Cacao has a rich history dating back thousands of years, and it was highly valued by ancient civilizations such as the Aztecs and Maya. Today, cacao is used primarily to produce chocolate, but the fruit has other uses as well. The pulp is sometimes used to make juice or wine, and it can also be fermented and distilled to make a liquor called cacao wine. The dried pods are sometimes used as a natural dye for textiles or paper, and the seeds can be used as a natural insect repellent.
