Coffee arabica

Arabica and Robusta coffee trees are easy to grow. They can be transplanted straight from the mother trees where they fell and grew. The best time to transplant coffee is during the rainy season. | Edwin D. Doyo - General Santos City, PHIL 21-Jun-2011

Coffee arabica (Grafted) 9/10

Heather2's Edible Fruits
Update: 2570 days 0hrs

Comments: -

We planted the 2 coffee trees behind the shed as we read they like Lime. The cement slab does seem to encourage them along. Our first crop we only got enough beans off 1 of the trees to have 2 cups of coffee. This year we got 4 kilo of beans between the 2 trees.

For roasting the beans we got an oil can and devised a way to put it on the BBQ rotisserie. After some experimenting we found by doing it this method for 20 minutes it gave them a lovely taste.

Fruiting Months May and June

Planted: 2008

Height 2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 2

Fruit Harvest: 4 kilograms per Year

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pruned By: 3% in After Fruiting

Pollination: No

When I Fertilise: When Fruiting

Pest Control:

No sprays used

Organic Status:Organic

Question:

To add extra flavour to the beans we were wondering if we could add Macadamia Oil to the roasting procedure?

They are growing quite well, are still in pots but have turned into nice bushes. They flowered last summer and are still holding onto the fruit. One has grown quite large and is inside now full of fruit. the other two are outside still and are still holding onto quite a few berries.


Grow in a warm location with filtered light, they like to be watered frequently and fertilized once every month or two.

UPDATE 2014: Fruiting like crazy, AND when about to relocate it, found about a dozen self-seeded seedlings underneath! :) So have potted those up, and see how they go :) And also see how the transplant goes - it's not into ideal location, but I needed to move it foraquaponics tank

UPDATE 2012: Lots of flowers this year, berries seem to be developing nicely

It died because of frost, but I was contemplating removing it anyway, as there are weed issues. I guess those weed issues are limited by frost, though!

Lovely large glossy leaves. Bright green new growth ages to a dark green. Seems to be slow growing.


Summer 2011: FIRST FLOWERS! So excited. They are hard to see because they are down at the base of the leaves along the branches but they are there! Fingers crossed for some fruit!!! I had always been told that they were highly fragrant. I haven't noticed any particular smell but with all the rain it could easily have been washed away.
