What is the country of origin of the cocoa tree?

Answer

The cocoa tree is a tropical species native to Mexico and domesticated about 3,000 years ago, most likely originally for the production of a fermented, and therefore alcoholic, drink. It produces edible beans from which cocoa, the basic product of chocolate, is made.
