Varietal Information
The Yellow Pacamara is a natural mutation of the Red Pacamara (a cross between a Maragogype and Pacas). We first discovered this yellow maturing varietal on our farm El Limoncillo around 2004. We re-planted some seeds from these initial trees and from there have grown this varietal in our other farms as well. This varietal requires more food (fertilizer) than other varieties, about 20% more when compared to a Bourbon or Caturra, and requires soil that is rich in magnesium, zinc, and potassium (which La Huella is generously endowed with). It is also a varietal that is susceptible to diseases and does not produce a large yield. Despite these disadvantages, this varietal produces a spectacular cup profile. Fruitier and more citric than its red maturing cousin.
