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.
