Intensely sweet, playfully sour, and distinctly tropical - the fresh pulp of the cacao fruit tastes something like citrus, mango, or lychee. Once you suck all that creamy pulp off you will find the cacao inside. Cacao is the raw, unprocessed version of cocoa. It's bitter, with hints of dark chocolate but eating the pulp with the seeds balances it out giving it a sweet and bitter, fruity chocolate taste.

The seeds pack a lot of flavour and so each fruit goes a long way. However, if raw cacao isn't your cup of tea, go ahead and make homemade chocolate. I've been eating one as I type this and honestly, I can't get enough.

One way to tell if the fruit is ripe is by shaking it. When unripe the beans are attached to the inner husk. When ripe you will hear the beans shaking around. Or if the fruit has no green on the pod then you will also know it's ready to eat.
