Hawaiian Cacao Services

Grow your own cacao in Hawaii! Puna Chocolate Company can assist you in selecting Hawaiian Cacao varietals that match your climate and chocolate production goals. We are experts on Big Island soils and climates. We grow various selections in our own nursery as well as access USDA Hawaii material.

The Big Island of Hawaii as well as all other islands benefit from a diverse array of soils and climates. Each variation offers a unique challenge to farming. Importantly, cacao originated in Central American rainforest conditions that are different from what we experience in Hawaii. Therefore, anyone hoping to venture into cocoa production will face numerous challenges as they navigate which selections of cacao genetics to be successful in taste and suitability as well as how to prepare the soil and surrounding grounds. 

Puna Chocolate has planted cacao orchards across Big Island and are intimately familiar with each climate and many variations of cacao that exist and can be grown on island. Use our extensive knowledge, passionate work ethics, and deep pool of cacao seedlings to start your own cacao orchard or get help at any step.
