Hi all,

I am from India and during a recent trip to one of the agricultural colleges, I have identified some land which might be suitable to growing cocoa.

Unfortunately, the college doesnt have seeds/saplings to try it out.

I was wondering if anyone could help me source maybe saplings/seeds to try it out.

And while at it, I might want to try sourcing from Latin America and Ghana to see the result.

If I could get all three - criollo, forastero and trinitario, it would really help in terms of identifying which type would be suitable.

Also, how many seeds would I need to carry out my testing?

Thanks in advance.

Akbar Kaliwala.

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
