Traditionally Equatorial Guinea's main crop has been cocoa, which is grown from the beach area up to a height of 400m above sea level. The cocoa is of the "Forastero" type, known as golden melon. In the past it used to be much coveted; the beans are uniform with a good shape, with a high fat content and mostly having an astringent and slightly acid taste. Finally, it is artificially dried. The price of cocoa is fixed by Equatorial Guinea's government.
