Likewise, does coffee come from cherries?
A coffee bean is a seed of the Coffea plant and the source for coffee. It is the pit inside the red or purple fruit often referred to as a cherry. Just like ordinary cherries, the coffee fruit is also a so-called stone fruit. A small percentage of cherries contain a single seed, instead of the usual two.
Also Know, how do you grow a coffee plant? When growing coffee plants, the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet. Also, make sure that both the soil and the pot your coffee plant is growing in has good drainage. The humidity around the plant will need to stay high as well. Setting your coffee plant on a water-filled pebble tray will help with humidity.
Simply so, can you grow coffee in your backyard?

Can you grow a coffee tree from a coffee bean?
How to Grow Coffee from Coffee Plant Seeds. Ideally to grow coffee bean plants, you should start with a freshly picked coffee cherry, but most of us don't live in a coffee producing country, so this is a bit problematic. Fresh seeds germinate in 2 ½ months while older seeds take about 6 months.
