Malvaceae week 0905-9112011 UD 035 Theobroma cacao
I had been watching and talking about this tree for many years, many paper prints and cellulosic negatives later finally got some digital pics… but then it had no fruit to speak of, only very pretty flowers and nice thick trunk… and flowers strewn on the floor of the NYBG conservatory… these are from summer 0f 2008 when I had a digital contraption…
Genus: Theobroma L.
Species Theobroma cacao L.
If I find the fruit pics of this particular tree I’ll post them in this thread later…. Don’rt know when…
