Cocoa is an evergreen tree native to Central America, where it thrives along riverbanks. The tree grows to a height of about 24 feet, has large glossy green leaves and small yellow flowers that grow directly on the trunk and develop into large yellow or red fruits with seeds. Cocoa was first introduced to Europe by Christopher Columbus, who learned of its use from the Aztecs.
Cocoa beans and oils are used in skin lotions, creams, lipsticks, soaps, and of course in the manufacturing of edible chocolate.
