Do you use CNN51 in your chocolate at all, what do you consider about it in general comparing it with arriba and nacional?

As far as the pod goes for a Nacional or Nacional Arriba, there should be no difference. Arriba refers to a growing region rather than a specific type of cacao. However, a CCN-51 tree and a Nacional tree are very different and can be distinguished on site alone-CCN-51 has more branches, more pods, is more "leggy" and has many more red-toned leaves than a Nacional tree.

Is that the pod of an arriba cocoa tree¨?
What would be the genetic difference between nacional cocoa in general and a truly arribacocoa. Would be possible to visually appreciate?
