    Garcia

    • First Produced By: Randy Remington (24967)
    • First Produced In: 2010

    History:
    In 2001, Randy Remington found the original Garcia line chocolate female as a near adult at Reptilian Haven in Denver, Colorado. She may have been an import but ate well. After several years of failed breeding attempts, in 2007 she was sent to Daniel Garcia on a breeding loan and proved genetic. In 2010, Marshall Van Thorre produced what appeared to be super/homozygous Garcias and as they looked like the BHB line super chocolate they became the “Garcia line chocolates”. [2]
