Sometimes A Bean Is Really A Fruit

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Tuesday, March 29

Though it's called a coffee bean, believe it or not, that's a fruit pit that you make your morning beverage from. The coffee berry itself has two stones or "beans" that are roasted to become what we know as coffee. It takes a little patience to grow your own coffee tree. It takes them three to five years before they bear fruit.

After that, though, they'll create your morning coffee beans for the next ten to twenty years. If you enjoy composting, coffee grounds are a nice edition to your pile. While Brazil is known for coffee today, it was also known for using the bark of a different kind of tree to brew an unusual liquor in times past. Though you may not want to actually drink a mimosa bark beer yourself, you can find mimosa trees in our online tree nursery
