ARABICA COFFEE Tree Shrub Seeds - Grow your own coffee!
Coffee Arabica is an evergreen shrub or small tree. It is native to Ethiopia, but is now cultivated worldwide (where the climate allows). It is believed to be the first species of coffee to be cultivated, & Arabica is still considered to be the best today!
Currently, over 75% of the coffee produced worldwide is Coffea Arabica. Coffee production is a major source of income, especially for many developing countries where coffee is grown.
Coffee plants have tons of showy fragrant flowers that are scented like jasmine! These beautiful blooms are reason enough to grow them! The flowers turn to fruits that are called “a cherry”. The cherries start out green, changing to yellow & then finally red at maturity.
The fruit matures at different times, so you will get to enjoy all of the wonderful colors together. Each fruit contains 2 seeds that we call coffee beans. The fruit is dried, & the beans are picked out & cleaned. Coffee plants can't tolerate any frost, but will lovingly allow you to prune them into any size or shape you desire.
