|Hello! I would like to know if Cocao trees grow good in Florida (zone 9B)?Do the have many problems with pests?
Thank you very much.
|Cocoa plants are adapted to and grow best in hot, humid tropical areas with evenly distributed rainfall. Truly tropical areas are characterized by year-round temperatures at or above 68?F and no freezing temperatures. I don't think you'll be terribly successful with a cocoa tree, unless you have a well protected area. They make unique, interesting, challenging, and fun additions to the home landscape.|
