Chocolate Down Under
Do you use CNN51 in your chocolate at all, what do you consider about it in general comparing it with arriba and nacional?
As far as the pod goes for a Nacional or Nacional Arriba, there should be no difference. Arriba refers to a growing region rather than a specific type of cacao. However, a CCN-51 tree and a Nacional tree are very different and can be distinguished on site alone-CCN-51 has more branches, more pods, is more "leggy" and has many more red-toned leaves than a Nacional tree.
Is that the pod of an arriba cocoa tree?What would be the genetic difference between nacional cocoa in general and a truly arribacocoa. Would be possible to visually appreciate?Maria Soledad Troya
