Variation and correlations of some pod and bean values in cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) with reference to the parental effects on fruit setting and bean number


, : Variation and correlations of some pod and bean values in cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) with reference to the parental effects on fruit setting and bean number. Turrialba 27(2): 193-198

The fruits studied were obtained from two pollination experiments carried out at the Cacao Research Centre, Itabuna, Brazil, using eight clones as parents in each experiment. Fruit set and number of beans/fruit differed significantly according to pollen parent. Only SCA12 showed notable tolerance of a heavy physiological cherelle wilt; eight weeks after its occurrence 41.8% of fruits were still alive while the other clones had suffered almost complete fruit loss.
