Botanical Name: Coffea arabica
Resistant to both 'Berry Disease' and 'Coffee Rust' this tree was developed and recommended for growing in the Northern Rivers Area by NSW Agriculture Department after extensive trials at Alstonville NSW. An open spreading variety, it is a reliable cropper, producing large flavour-filled beans; it is also the recommended variety for those who intend to harvest mechanically.

Question & Answer
Hi Daleysfruit, I received a coffee k7 from you guys and was inquiring about one tree is growing a second leader and the other already has a second leader so i would like to know for growing great quality coffee should i cut the second lead branch off or just leave them grow From: BRUSHGROVE NSW
I would just let it grow as is and when about 1 mtr high prune the top to let it bush up. They most likely will do this naturally
Hi, I missed out on buying Coffee K7 plants that I received a message about yesterday. Is it possible to preorder plants ( about 20) so when some are ready I don't miss out. Thanks Andrew From: BROOKFIELD QLD
We will have plenty more K7 available in a month or so. Probably best if you request a notification when they become available again #CoffeeK604
