CocoaCocoa trees grow in the hot, humid zones between 20° north and south of the Equator. Every year, such a tree will yield 20 to 50 fruits, which in turn hold about 25 to 50 cocoa beans.
Differences in taste, aroma and color of chocolate are largely due to the species of cocoa tree (variety of cocoa bean), but are also affected by the makeup of the soil in the specific area of cultivation. TOBLERONE is made from a selection of cocoa beans from different parts of the world.
