Hello all chocoholics out there

For the london chocolate week, we exceptionally have a shipment of 140 fresh cocoa pods from Cameroun at our shop in central london.
If you have never visited plantations, this is as close as you can get. These can be gently dried or for the more adventurous opened and one can taste the flesh of the fruit and try the beans unfermented.
Let me know if any want some reserved.
Sorry cannot send as there are FRESH fruits!!!

I surely want one, but it depends on the price of course. Is it possible to dry them? I think they are decorative, but have no clue of how they ‘behave’.
