Grafted plants now ready for planting!

Our first 300 grafted plants are now ready and being sold to SKIA members.

We want as many SKIA members as possible to see the difference in performance between grafted plants and seedlings, so these will be divided among interested farmers.

You need to register your interest with SKIA by Friday afternoon so we can understand how we need to divide the grafted plants. you may be limited to 10 plants if demand is high.

Grafted plants will be available for SAT2.50 pickup, or SAT 2.80 delivered.

These grafted plants have spent more time in our nursery, have grown larger, and have been grafted from parent trees of verified variety. This means they will produce cocoa 1-2 years earlier and in larger volumes than other coca trees.
