Coffea arabica, Coffee

 Coffea arabica
Family: Rubiaceae
Coffee
Origin: Ethiopia
large shrub 5-10 ftsmall tree 10-20 ftshadesemi-shadekeep soil moistwhite/off-white flowersfragrantethnomedicaledibleincuded in CD catalog

Beautiful dark green shrub or small tree. The white, fragrant, star-shaped flowers are clustered in the leaf axils. They resemble gardenias to which they are related. The edible fruits are small fleshy berries changing in color from green to yellow to red. Two greenish-gray seeds are covered with a thin membrane and are enclosed in a dry husk-like parchment. When only one seed develops it is known as a pea-berry and commands a higher price. The seeds can easily be dried, roasted and ground at home. These plants need a rich, moist acid soil and filtered light. These plants can be grown outdoors in southern Florida and California; otherwise, in greenhouses. Related species: C. robusta (Robusta Coffee); C. liberica (Liberian Coffee).
