154. Cocoa Pods

GONATE, COTE D’IVOIRE, 2004. Cocoa pods on Eugenie’s tree. This is an especially productive tree. Note that the pods are blemish-free, which is a sign of the proper (copious?) application of miricides. The average tree produces 40 pods per year; this tree seems to exceed the average.
