Description
Annotation translation: "The fruit grows from the tree's trunk. At first it is tiny, but grows into a fat cucumber-like fruit, yellow and vermilion in colour. Inside the skin, surrounded by a milky white sweet substance, you find the cocoa beans, which are prepared for their journey by being dried." "Vollbehr Art Postcards, Cameroon."
Annotation: "Direkt am Stamm des Kakaobaumes kommen die winzig kleinen und später die dicken, gurkenartigen, gelben und zinnoberfarbigen Früchte. In der Fruchthülle, in einer weissen, süsslichen Milchmasse befinden sich die Kakaobohnen, die durch Trockenprozesse zum Versand bereitet werden.' - 'Vollbehr-Künstlerpostkarten 'Kamerun'."
Note: Vorlage: Aquarell von Ernst Vollbehr.
