Caption: Coffee fruits. Branch of a coffee plant, Coffea sp., showing two clusters of fruits, attached with very short stems. The fruits vary in colour from pale green when they first develop to deep crimson when they are fully ripe and ready for picking. The fruits develop over the 6 to 7 months following the flowering of the fragrant white blooms that last only for a few days. Ripe fruits at harvest typically contain two seeds, the coffee beans, surrounded by sweet pulp. The beans are dried before being used commercially in the production of coffee. Photographed in Brazil.
