In the coming months, the flowers will become small fruits called “chumbinhos”. At this stage it is important that the plant has enough leaves to be able to nourish all small fruits, preventing the flowers abort the pellets for lack of nutrients.
When all the flowers have fallen and only the pellets remain, the ripening period begins, which lasts until the beginning of June, when the harvest begins. During the ripening period it is important that the soil has plenty of nutrients and that the rain is regular to promote good fruit growth.
In late autumn, when the rains are coming to an end and winter is approaching, the coffee tree hibernates again and while it sleeps we reap its fruits. In mid-October, the cycle begins again, with the new flowering.
