Coffee arabica

A small tropical bush that makes a lovely container plant resembling gardenia. The white flowers are quite showy but short lived. The fruits mature to a vivid red. Beans are harvested, roasted and ground for coffee. The leaves which contain more caffeine than the fruits are used as a tea substitute. An indoor plant can produce enough beans for roasting and the berries are edible. The indoor plant doesn't need direct sun and can be situated in the middle of the room. A terracotta pot works best indoors and shade is important outdoors. Zones 9-10.
