A DNA test has confirmed that the true identity of what used to be called here as Red Criollo is BR25. This was relayed to us by the fellow who supplied the seeds and who told us that it was Red Criollo.
We are of course glad that the true identity has been confirmed. Anyway, the variety has performed exceptionally well under Teresa, Rizal conditions. It has never stopped fruiting since 18 months from planting in the ground up to this time, more than six years later. The tree has never been afflicted by disease. The common pod borer has never been observed in our farm.
