Frangipanis (also known as Plumerias) are relatively small trees growing only to about 5-6m in height, but what they lack in height they make up in width often becoming as wide as they are tall.

They have a well-behaved root system which makes them great for the home garden and for growing in pots. Frangipanis are also great survivors coping with drought, heat, neglect and insect and pest attack. They are also deciduous allowing maximum winter sun while providing shade in summer.

There are many reasons for which we should all be tree-hugging hippies, but within the scope of this blog post, all we’ll focus on are the looks of these amazing nature wonders.

This is Where Hawaiian Chocolate Comes From

From this wonderful, tropical and exotic plant:

“Lower-quality cacao beans often get mixed in with premium varieties on their way to becoming chocolate bars, truffles, sauces and liqueurs.”

Did you know that Hawaii is the only place in the United States with a commercial cacao production?

“But the stakes for policing the chocolate industry are high. It’s a multi-billion dollar global enterprise, and in some places, it’s as much art as business. There’s also a conservation angle to knowing whether products are truly what confectioners claim them to be.”
