  9. 9. How chocolate is made…. Cacao trees are grown in tropical regions of South America, Africa and Asia where the climate is hot and wet. Pods grow upto 25cm long. Inside each pod there are around 45 white beans. Harvesting the pods is hardwork. Workers will often attach knives to long sticks in order to cut down the pods.
