Will plant the seeds for sure but was wondering if that specie can be grafted onto "classic" cacao ? Any tips and info welcome.
Congratulations! I still look forward to blooming my trees.
It is imposiblle to directly graft theobroma grandiflorum on theobroma cacao and theobroma cacao on theobroma grandiflorum. Grafted scion develops some leaves and then dies.
It is cleary described on 384 page of "Hybridization and Grafting in Species of Theobroma Which Occur in Amazonia"
