Availability has been studied both in young (10-12 months) and in mature (7-17 years) cocoa. Acquisition feeds were given directly on young plants in the greenhouse, and on mature trees in the field without severing the branch. While transmissions varied greatly both between tests and individual plants it was clearly established that virus was much more readily recovered from mature sensitive than mature tolerant trees. No difference between sensitive and tolerant young cocoa was detected
