We think that our cacao is a resistant hybrid of the original "criollo" that is called "trinitario" (from the island of Trinidad).  This is also confirmed by the FHIA (Honduran federation of agricultural research http://fhia.org.hn ) from which we also purchased several varieties of plants.

However a fairly recent DNA genetic study, titled as follows, seems to identify the genetics of our cacao as criollo:
