The Annual Report for the Cocoa Research Unit, Trinidad (CRU, Trinidad 1991a [CRU91A]) lists an accession SP 1 with the information that this stands for Spieringshoek, comes from Trinidad and is of "criollo type". This could represent the SP 1 referred to by Lems (cited by Bartley, 1993a [BAR93A]) which originated in Surinam. However, Bartley comments that as far as he is aware, there is no surviving material of this clone. The SP 1 in ICG,T may therefore be SP 1 [VEN] which could have been sent to ICG,T from CENIAP Venezuela as part of an exchange consignment in 1987/9.
