Plant descriptions and photos:

Criollo X: New variety! A “true” criollo variety with white seeds. Pure white beans make a more subtle, delicate, and smoother chocolate. This new variety is from an unknown seedling in Puerto Rico. This is the first year the tree has fruited. Pod is yellow and medium sized, and a bit fatter than the Soconusco. Seeds as stated are pure white, and medium-sized.





Claiborne Criollo: An old, heirloom Puerto Rican Criollo variety. Large striking red-to-yellow pod with a unique shape. Seeds are large, pure white to mottled purple in color. Limited stock due to few seeds germinating well.







Nacional: This is an heirloom Nacional variety from Ecuador, EET-59. Nacional is the original and genetically pure Ecuadorian cacao. While this is not 100% Nacional, it is an “heirloom,” the closest variety to pure Nacional. This is what high quality “Nacional” cacao from the arriba region is made of. Nice big yellow pods, large dark purple seeds inside. Have both larger plants in 6 inch pots and small seedlings.







Pentagona: A spectacular cacao from Venezuela. Incredibly rare, this variety produces small yellow-green pods. The shape is very unique, as it has 5 ridges instead of grooves along the fruit. Because of this, the cross section is pentagon-shaped, hence the name. Seeds are small-sized, lighter purple to pink. Extremely hard to find. Have both 1 year old plants (not as big as 1 year old Nacional-this variety grows slower in the beginning, but should increase growth soon), as well as small seedlings.







Soconusco: Famous heirloom Mexican variety from the region of the same name. One of the best regions/varieties from Aztec cultivation. Medium and somewhat thin yellow pods, both dark purple and light purple small-sized seeds in each pod.





Round Leaf Jaca: A cacao with round leaves! Small seedling leaves somewhere in between round and pointed, but the true leaves are totally round. Variety is a mutation of a high quality amenolado variety, with potential for disease resistance. Plant easily branches and should be easy to maintain as a shrub rather than a tree. Small yellow amenolado pods, small dark purple seeds. Looks like a miniature Nacional, and should taste similar (stronger flavor notes instead of the more subtle flavor of Criollo varieties-still high quality, just different).







Herrania Mariae: rare species closely related to the theobromas, except that mature leaves are compound, and H. Mariae tends to remain a smaller, less branched plant. These also took several weeks to sprout and grow relatively slowly, when compared to the instant germination and fast growth of cacao. Even being almost a year old most are under 4 inches tall-better plants than cacao for keeping in small spaces, as they remain smaller even when mature (and flower at smaller sizes, though at about the same age). Pods are green when ripe with ridges and slight webbing between the ridges.





Garcinia Intermedia: Lemon Drop Mangosteen. Relative of the Mangosteen, this species produces small spherical yellow fruit which, peeled, reveals a white juicy, cottony aril around one, two, or three seeds. Flavor is pleasantly sour-sweet, and distinctive (aka hard to describe, so I won’t even try-but its delicious!). Plants grow very slowly at first-mine are almost a year old-but should pick up pace as they get older.





Garcinia Brasiliensis: Superior Lemond Drop Mangosteen. Fruits are smaller and pointier than LDM, but much sweeter and a stronger flavor, with almost no acid. In my opinion definitely superior to LDM.



Langsat: Common Langsat from Borneo, not any special variety but from good fruit.



Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any plants killed when buyer’s fault-leaving package out for extended period, shipping when temperatures too cold/hot (though I will try to make sure weather is good before shipping), etc. If a plant dies from shipping, I will replace the plant if possible (buyer pays shipping), or refund the purchase.

Hi! Do you mean the 2 cacao plants for $35 with shipping included sale? That includes all the small seedling cacao varieties: Criollo X, Nacional, Pentagona, Soconusco, and Round Leaf Jaca. The herranias are not included, but I could make 1 of the 2 plants a Herrania for $5 extra, or both for $10 extra.

Then I would like the Criollo X and the Soconusco. That’s a bit too slow growing for me. Let me know how to pay. Thanks!
