Ko Pe......Coffee


Coffea arabica





Several species of coffee grow in Hawaii all native to the areas of tropical Africa. Arabica is the most common and grows wild in many Hawaiian lowland rain forests. This is a very robust and agressive plant and becomes weedy in many wet areas of Hawaii. Possibly coffee may become the predominate agricultural crop in Hawaii, over-taking sugar, pineapple, and macadamia nuts.
