Physiological variants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Kloeckera apiculata have been identified in oil palm wine and cashew juice from Nigeria. Genomic DNA from the four S. cerevisiae variants had a % G + C of 36-41% while that of K. apiculata was 32.2%. Fermentation of cashew juice produced wine of alcoholic contents of 10% with S. cerevisiae, 8% with K. apiculata and 9.3% with both yeasts simultaneously.
