Cacao trees grow on Maui - buy a home and grow cacao 

Who wants to grow some cacao, or chocolate trees?  You can find some properties for sale on Maui with cacao trees growing.  More and more people are planting some of these trees just for fun, and some are planning to go with commercial production.  They do well in Haiku with the mild climate and ample rain.

Cacao pod in Haiku Maui

This cacao pod is growing on a specimen tree at 480 Puniawa Rd. which I've blogged about recently as the "Brando" estate since it was formerly owned by Marlon Brando.  The 26.7 acre property is for sale and many more trees could be planted for your very own chocolate plantation.
