Donaldo Gonzalez Fiallos is the general manager and one of the founding members of the Aruco cooperative, as well as owning and managing his own farm, Sol Naciente, in the Los Limos area of Corquin, Copan. The 7 hectare farm sits at 1250masl and is mostly planted with red and yellow catuai, but he has also started planting Lempira, Parainema and IHCAFE90. After noticing that the red and yellow catuai cherries taste very different we decided to compare their sugar and acid levels and their cup profiles.

Interestingly, the yellow cataui cherries were much higher in sugar and acid, with sugar readings on average of 27%, which is extremely high. This sweetness and acidity persists in the cup and gives a really unique flavour profile, full of ripe pineapple. Falcon and Aruco have selected this variety for selection and reproduction to pass on to other producers to compare the results elsewhere in the area in order to determine whether it's uniqueness is the variety, the climate conditions or the combination.
