The Three Major Species of Cacao
There are three major species of Theobroma Cacao currently in wide cultivation around the world:
- Heirloom Criollo
- Trinitario (a cross of Criollo and Forastero)
Heirloom Criollo is the most highly prized, as this variety is very rare, comprising less than 1% of the worldwide cacao market. Many internet sites and chocolate companies brag about their Criollo cacao beans, when in reality, they have Forastero varieties.
