São Tomé: an island of chocolate
Although São Tomé is a very a small island located in the Gul of Guinea, in western Africa, its nickname "The Chocolate Island," is still accurate. In fact, this island, which was discovered by the Portuguese sailor, Pedro Escobar in 1470, was actually the world's largest producer of cocoa beans in the world in 1915. The relationship between São Tomé and Principe and chocolate began in 1822 when the first cocoa trees were imported from Brazil. The variety of cocoa cultivated is the Amelonado variety, a derivative of the Forastero beans which are found in the Lower Amazonia region. The tree is known for its high yields and its hardiness. Its pods are light green in color and the leaves are dark purple.
Cocoa beans from São Tomé are prized by chocolate makers around the world. In fact, they have the unusual characteristic of not needing any added flavors. It's also notable that cocoa cultivation continues to support a large part of the population. Cocoa makes up 90% of the country's agricultural exports, involving an annual production of close to 4,000 tons. The discovery of oil deposits should nevertheless change that.
