    What is this crop?

    The crop with white flowers - anyone know what it is? I’m pretty sure it isn’t Jasmine.

    Could be. I have it permanently planted so don’t really remember the stages it goes through to mature. Just saw it growing in a neighbor town while filling a crate.

    Cool. I didn’t realize it starts off with white blossoms. I buy all my coffee beans from the Market and haven’t harvested my trees in a very, very long time. Amazing the little details we forget about!

    I'm the same, Nana. The rare occasions I plant coffee it's always overnight, so it don't think I've ever seen the plants at the half-way stage.

    They're pretty, actually!

    They are really nice looking. I like the various growing stages of the different crops. It's kinda cool. I was surprised when the coffee bean icons were red and green, though. Are coffee beans really red? I figured they'd be green and brown.

    From Wikipedia:

    A coffee bean is a seed of the coffee 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. Even though the coffee beans are seeds, they are referred to as "beans" because of their resemblance to true beans.

    Yeah - they start out green and ripen to a deep red. Who knew, lol?

    I guess ya learn something new everyday! Fascinating! I'm a big coffee lover, so it's really fun to have coffee beans and a coffee factory in the game.
