Caption: Cocoa and chewing gum plants. 1742 engraving of the plants used to make chocolate and chewing gum. On the left is the fruit of the cacao (cocoa) tree (Theobroma cacao), an evergreen native of Central America. The leathery yellow pods contain up to 100 beans embedded in a soft pulp. These are dried, roasted and ground to produce cocoa powder or chocolate. Chewing gum is made from "chicle", the latex of the sapodilla tree (Achras zapota, right), also native to Central America. The latex is "tapped" in the same way as rubber, before being sweetened and flavoured. The edible fruits of the tree are called sapodilla plums.
