4" Coffee Arabica


Coffee/houseplant, the perfect combo!! Coffee Arabica has an ancient history starting in Ethiopia, discovered by Arab traders who took it along far and wide to all their trading posts, and named it Arabica. Wild plants grow up to 30', with smaller sizes expected in warm winter gardens to 15', and smaller still as a fine houseplant. Glossy, ripply, deep green leaves grow on shaggy, brown stems. Bright red coffee cherries will clump on the trunks after the very sweetly fragrant, starry, white, frilly flowers. The red cherries are sweetly edible, the leaves have been dried for tea since olden days, and even the discarded fruit husks can be ground for another powdered tea. One small Coffee plant from our Shop grew to a nice big bush, bore lots of coffee cherries which were processed, roasted and made a quality coffee rivalling that shop on every street corner! And what a fun and satisfying process to grow your own Coffee! Have a cup of your own coffee and toast your plant.
