“Soconusco has many different shapes of pods but not such a wide array of colors as in Venezuela…”

07 Jul

 Soconusco has many different shapes of pods but not such a wide array of colors as in Venezuela. Rich genetic diversity in cacao here. Top has upper amazonian tendencies second more criollo tendencies bottom two trinitario leaning towards forastero.
Pointy nose, with crescent shape along with deep ridges and knots on the body suggests criollo. Flatter nose with less defined ridges on a rounder body suggests more forastero.

The very deep furrows and strong bottleneck on the top pod suggest upper amazon ancestry rather than criollo. Second from top is more typical shape of Central American criollo.
