Caption: Cocoa pods growing on the trunk of a cacao or chocolate tree (Theobroma cacao). The pods contain the cocoa beans (seeds) from which chocolate is made. The production of flowers and fruits directly on the trunk or branches of a plant is known as cauliflory and is quite common amongst rainforest plants. It may be associated with pollination or fruit dispersal by bats. Photographed on a plantation, Ghana.
