Product description

The cola tree is a plant of the sterculiaceae family like the cocoa tree. The cola tree is native to the forests of West Africa. It is a bushy tree of about ten meters in height on average, with yellow flowers and evergreen leaves 15 to 20 cm long, leathery and pointed at both ends. There is a great diversity of colatiers. There are about 140 species of beetles in the world, two of which are very valuable in Africa: the acuminata beetle and the nitida beetle.

The cola tree is a tree of hot and humid climate with a relative temperature of 25°C. It grows with an annual rainfall of more than 1000 mm with a well marked dry season (not exceeding 4 months). There are three types of seasons that correspond to the production of cola :
  • The short production season; May-July;
  • The medium production season: August-October;
  • The great season of production: November-April.
The cola tree prefers soft, deep and well-drained soils (depth: 1 m).
It tolerates variable clay contents. Lightly shaded sites are suitable for the first 3 or 4 years of growth. Cola trees reproduce by nut or seed (generative), by cutting and layering (vegetative).
