Snapshots from Seed to Tree

First, the seed is simply the coffee bean.  You can see in the picture above that what is planted and begins to grow is the bean that is inside the cherry.

As shoot growth happens the stalk lengthens

The head of the stem will leaf and give rise to higher order shoots

If the seedlings are being grown in a nursery they will be planted in individual pots/bags.
This will allow for the transportation of the seedling to a farm/consumer once the seedling is old enough.

The next stage in the growth process is flowering.

The blooms give rise to the fruit which enters the plant into the ripening phase —  one of the most unsynchronized parts of the whole growth process.

In only 6 years time the trees in this video grew from seeds to beautiful fruit bearing trees!
