Make me offers! I'd especially love passiflora, plumeria, or just something really pretty!

They have to be VERY fresh for them to be viable.

Amanda, I live near Hershey, Pennsylvania. (home of Hershey chocolate!) A few years ago, there were cacao plants for sale at Chocolate World. I asked about their growing conditions and was told that first of all, you need a male and a female plant in order to grow beans. Secondly, the plants grow to enormous heights in the jungle, and no one has a greenhouse that tall! In other words, they had no idea why they were selling the plants at all and they recommended against buying them.

However, since you live in a very warm zone, give it a try. I'd love to hear how it goes for you... Jill

Do you have any cacao plants? I have lots to offer.

I just planted about 50 cacao seeds, and the first ones have started to germinate. So even though I don't have any cacao seeds left, if you are interested in cacao seedlings, remind me (send me an email) in a month or so and I could ship you some seedlings in a pot. Although shipping would be more expensive than sending seeds.

I am growing Theobroma cacao as a houseplant and have for many years. I have had them flower for me. I did not get pods but they can be hand pollinated.
I would be happy to chat with anyone who is interested in more info.

I live on the Island of Saipan and I am very interested in growing cacoa trees. I am having trouble finding a source to buy seeds from. Does anyone have any information on where I might obtain some cacao seeds for growing?
