This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Mod Description:

Adds custom Cocoa Bean to the game


------Cocoa Bean can be found under 'Misc Appliances' . [ Search for 'Cocoa' in the search bar for easy access]
------ Can be planted and harvested

------ Cocoa Bean is tagged as Fruit (Func_Fruit) , so can be eaten raw or used in recipes which require fruits as a cooking ingredient.
------ Cocoa Bean can be sold using City Living Craft sales table
------ Toddler compatible (aka toddlers can eat the harvestable, play with the plant)

If the Plants do not become harvestable : -
1. Make sure , you are on the latest patch
2. Plant the veggie and not the plant/bush from debug
3. Re-plant if plant takes to long to go into harvestable mode
4. Use Debug Gardening Interaction made visible by me to check for harvestables
5. If the harvestable is small then, use the mod Debug Gardening Interaction made visible by me to 'Grow plant (+50)' a couple of times to take the plant to fully mature/blossoming stage (Harvestable is small if the plant is not fully mature)
Use No Tiny Harvestables by LITTLEMSSAM if you want the harvestables to be the same size always
