One of our local coffee plantations was in the local news this week with the annual coffee flowering receiving heavy interest.

From the Cairns Post - 13 November 2015

SKYBURY was in full bloom this week as more than 90,000 Arabica coffee plants simultaneously flowered at the Mareeba plantation.

Director of Skybury Coffee Ian MacLaughlin said the flowers only lasted a few days before the trees produced a small green oblong fruit known as a coffee cherry.

Mr MacLaughlin said the hot, dry weather in September and October had helped the flowers to bloom soon after the end of the dry season.

"Sometimes the weather can make it challenging, particularly if there is rainfall during this time, as the trees can flower earlier than we would like," he said.

He said growers often attempted to control the process by reducing the coffee plant's water intake.

The coffee cherries take about nine months to ripen before being harvested in July.

Skybury Coffee currently grows two varieties of Arabica coffee – a Red Bourbon and Yellow Catuai.
