The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

Easily grow your own Coffee, no matter where you live. This will become your favorite house plant. It produces colorful beans against a background of glossy dark green foliage.

Just walk over and harvest your beans when they ripen. They go from green to yellow, to orange, then finally to  deep red. In addition to the coffee aroma, you'll also love the spring flowers that smell like jasmine.

Dry your savory, Arabico coffee beans in your oven or roaster. Once they have completely cooled, they are ready to grind and percolate into a delicious brew. Growing your own coffee was never easier.

This evergreen plant requires minimum maintenance and is trouble free. Keep it in a pot indoors or out. If you live in zones 9-11, just plant in the ground, and protect it when temperatures go below 45F. If you live where its colder, no worries... just place in a room with windows during the winter or grow indoors all year round. 

In addition to enjoying the freshest cup available... you'll also feel good knowing that your beans were not sprayed wiith pesticides and are free of mold. 

Don't spend years waiting on coffee seeds or tiny plants to grow. Order now and you will receive well rooted coffee plants that will quickly become established in your home. With proper care, you could start picking beans after the first season.

Home coffee growing has recently become very popular. It was started by Coffee Conoseurs looking for more flavor... then Health Conscious growers looking for less chemicals. Now, Dr. Oz has fueled demand with his study on the weight loss benefits of eating green coffee beans. This is an amazing plant, full of many pleasant surprises.

Our large Coffee Plants will likely sell out. We recommend that you order now, while they are still available.

It's Easy to Plant your Coffee Plant

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Coffee Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Coffee Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Coffee Plant again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Growing well
I received the coffee plant and put it into a container. It looks and is growing great! No fruiting yet, but I think it's still early for the size I ordered. Arrived well-packaged and healthy and still looks healthy. Will bring it inside when it gets too cold in the winter.

what zone can i plant it outside?
Solaraardvark on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: I can't answer that regarding my purchase from Fast Growing Trees. While I ordered a coffee tree from them, I was shipped a gardenia bush. They would not acknowledge the shipping error and basically told me that I didn't know what a coffee tree looked like. I have another that I got in Hawaii. It's now 6' tall. I know what a coffee tree looks like. So be aware. You may not get what you order and they do not acknowledge their errors.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
