Arabica Coffee Trees grow beautiful small trees that reach heights of just 6 feet with dark green glossy leaves, bright white flowers, and red berries. The rich Coffee we drink is made from the roasted seed of the Coffee Tree’s fruit, called a Coffee Cherry. Coffee Trees are easy to grow, naturally resistant to pests and diseases, and each tree can produce hundreds of Coffee Beans per year. The Arabica variety of Coffee Tree produces the finest quality beans, which are prized for their smooth flavor.
Coffee Trees can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 9 to 11, or in a container in Zones 4 to 11. Since the trees are small, they are perfectly suited to growing in a pot. They are self-fertile so they will grow Coffee Cherries with no pollinator. However, for those who wish to harvest and roast their own Coffee at home, the more Coffee plants the better. Since the trees are small, you can easily grow three or four in the space normally occupied by a large fruit tree.
