As the story is told, workers from Cubas Ministry of Agriculture were tasked with developing improved corojo seeds, so they used positive selection to select the strongest plants. They started with 100 plants, took the seeds from the best five, planted those seeds, and repeated until they had developed seeds that grew the perfect corojo leaf. Except instead of giving the best seeds to the government, they were kept and smuggled out of the country, while less desirable seeds were handed over. Thus, they had taken the crop from the devil—Fidel Castro—and his regime.
