Coffee (Coffea arabica)

Grow your own coffee beans, glossy green foliage, attractive evergreen shrub for sub-tropical and protected temperate climates .. north Qld to Vic. Plants must be grown in frost-free areas.

There are several main species of coffee, the finest quality being Arabica, which originated in the highlands of Ethiopia and represents around 60% of the world’s coffee production.

The coffee bean is the seed of the coffee plant, found inside a red fruit often called the cherry. Each cherry contains two seeds (beans) surrounded by a membrane called the parchment and a layer of sweet pulp.

Coffee requires fertile well-drained soil in a sheltered position for optimal growth. Plants can be kept in pots and they make a beautiful indoor foliage plant. Plants flower in late spring with the fruit ripening in winter.

These trees are 4-6 months old, 15-20cm tall.
