The cocoanut ia (the fruit of a tall and graceful palm tree, where- as the conoa. or more properly cacao, is the mowdered seed of a small and handsome tree tearing no resemblance to the cocoa palm. In fact, the cacao tree is closely allied to our linden or lime trees. No one who has ever seen the peculiar appearance presented by the cacao tree Urill be likely to mistake it for anything else. fThe tree itself grows to a height of twenty or twenty-five feet, with a rather smooth and slen- ider trunk, bushy and symmetrical top, and fcandsome broad, oval leaves of a deep purple tor bronze colour. Instead of growing at the tend of the branches or twigs, as do most blossoms, the flowers bud out directly from the t>a.rk of the limbs and trunk. The flowers are wmall and insignificant, but the fruit, shaped like a cucumber, grows to a large size, Bome- ttimea eight or ten feet in length and three or lour inches across. It is brilliantly coloured joran^e, red, or yellow, and under favourable ^conditions fairly covers the tree, and is ft beauti- ful sight. It m jluf PJGIPP FIRE OFFICE.
