I think I might have found the highest altitude cacao in the world. Nobody can know for sure, but we do know that almost all cacao grows below 1,000 feet above sea level. This tree and a few others are healthy and happy at 5,448 feet (1,661 meters) above sea level. There were no pods yet but plenty of flowers. When these trees produce pods the fruit is quickly eaten by squirrels or monkeys.

saludos, brian

Cool indeed. i bet any fruits are going to be very slow maturing and quite high in fat - it'd be interesting if you could get it to fruit, mature, and grab one 8-)
