Just in Time for Valentine's Day: A Chocolate Tree (Photos)

A Chocolate Tree Growing in Okinawa


With Valentine's Day, just around the corner, what an unexpected find this was.

First, I saw these flowers, planted in the shape of a heart, going into the Orchid Show.

And, that's what reminded me, Valentine's Day must be coming soon.

Guys tend to forget stuff like that, you know.

So, I snapped a picture, to remind myself, it's like, any day, now.

Lucky, for me, guys don't have to do anything special on Valentine's Day.

Girls have to give the guys chocolate and stuff like that, for Valentine's, in Japan.  Hah !

 After shooting a few thousand orchids, I wandered into a greenhouse.

And, found this sign.  It tells me there's a chocolate tree, somewhere in there.

This is great.  I got the Latin name and found the tree, too.

Who would ever have dreamed, chocolate comes from these things, hanging on a tree ?

Now, all I have to do is tell the wife.  "Don't go buying me chocolate, anymore."

Let's just get one of those trees and plant it by the house.

See, I even shot the recipe for her so, we can make our own chocolates.

All you have to do is watch the fruits rot and, you get chocolate beans.

Sounds pretty simple, to me !
