On a recent origin trip, we came across a collection of Herrania, a cousin of cacao with quite stunning flowers. Unlike Theobroma family members like Grandiflorum (Cupuaçu) and Bicolor (Pataste/Pataxte), we're not aware of any food use of Herrania, but it was a site to behold nonetheless, as you can see from the photos below.

What great pictures of the Herrania, thanks for including in your blog. I also had a unique experience when I visited Tetteh Quarshie, Ghana’s oldest cocoa plantation, and as the country who is the second largest producer of cocoa beans in the world, it was also an experience not to miss.–-ghana’s-oldest-cocoa-plantation/
