Thank God that we have established the water system months before summer started. Now, our golden babies have the sunshine as well as enough water to grow.

Silay Highlands Cacao Adventure

imageimage imageimagePDS President Chris Fadriga was with Manong Dolping, PDS interim Vice-President for Negros Occidental the other day.image imageHe recounts that part of ‘nong Dolping’s  2000 plus cacao seedlings planted about 3 years ago have started to produce pods and will start to harvest a few pods soon.

Planting materials came from seeds of old cacao trees just around the Barrio of Patag.

“We would like to see some Fino Aromatico trees from them.” Mr. Fadriga confidently said.

He also started to do side grafting some for the heirloom cacao giving the white beans.
