Photo shows a two-year-old BR25 cacao with full-sized fruits at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. This is an early-bearing variety that is ever-bearing.
Seedling plants will start bearing as early as 16 to 18 months from planting in the ground. Cacao is one of the priority crops being promoted by the Department of Agriculture because of the big demand and the short supply of the same.
A lot of seedlings ready for planting are now available at the Sarian Farm. Contact Rose at 0915-434-4216 for information.
