The trees produce edible red or purple fruits called “cherries” that are described either as epigynous berries or as indehiscent drupes. The cherries contain two seeds, the so-called “coffee beans”, which—despite their name—are not true beans. In about 5-10% of any crop of coffee cherries, only a single bean, rather than the usual two, is found. This is called a peaberry, which is smaller and rounder than a normal coffee bean. It is often removed from the yield and either sold separately (as in New Guinea peaberry), or discarded.
