Greenwell Coffee Plantation

Aunt Judy really wanted to visit a coffee plantation and so we did. I learned that coffee beans grow kind of like cherries with fruit around the seed. The seed is the coffee bean. They used to throw the fleshy fruit part away, but now they've learned about all these antioxidants so they're saving that stuff now and selling it in some way, shape, or form. They also had lychee trees and avodcado trees as well as orange trees. I did see a rather large chameleon in an orange tree but couldn't get a photo. The chickens were entertaining...hen with chicks digging and scratching and pecking. Roosters showing dominance toward one another. We also toured the old general store of the plantation and learned a lot of historical stuff there. A pleasant stop.
