Cocoa Bean Hulls

By The Old House Web
Cocoa bean hulls are used as an organic mulch around flowers and trees. The hulls will breakdown within a year, adding organic matter to the soil. Fresh hulls have a "chocolate" aroma.

Hulls may become moldy if applied too thick. An inch layer should be sufficient.
