Creole Cacao is considered by experts as the best grain, for its aroma and flavor. It is the model from which others are classified. They describe it as delicate, fragrant and elegant. It is a fragile species to the environment and low production. It currently represents 2% to 5% of the trees on the planet and only 1% of world production. The fruit is long and ribbed, pointed, soft, warty and with cotyledons or soft seeds.
The Trinitario caco is a hybrid resulting from the cross between the Creole and the stranger. His birth occurs in the areas of the Orinoco Delta in Venezuela. It has the qualities that characterize the two species that contribute its genes: it is aromatic, robust, with great capacity to adapt to diseases and adverse agroecological conditions; It is also very productive and high performance. It occupies 14% of world production. As an example of the Trinitarian we have the Superior Carenero, of Windward.
The foreign cocoa is a tree of many fruits, it is robust but common and not very aromatic. It has its origin in the high Amazon rainforest, in the period in which the species were diversified. Today it supplies 85% of world demand. Its fruits are rounded and hard, with nuanced seeds in purple tones.
