The Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus) is no longer the official state tree in Kentucky. However, it’s not hard to see why it once held that distinction. It’s known to grow in the open woods scattered throughout the Bluegrass State, and once upon a time, the seeds that come from the pods that grow on the trees were used by the earliest settlers of the state as a substitute for coffee. Cold Stream Farm has plenty of Kentucky coffee trees for sale and can provide you with the wholesale coffee trees you need to fill your property with them.

The Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus) doesn’t grow particularly fast, but it can grow up to 90 feet tall. It has very large leaves that grow on it next to the large pods that contain the seeds once used to in place of coffee beans. One thing to keep in mind when investing in Kentucky coffee trees is the pods on them will fall off in the spring in unison and require cleanup if you plant them on a smaller residential or commercial property. It’s why these wholesale coffee trees work best when they’re planted in larger areas like parks.

Unlike most other deciduous trees, the Kentucky coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus) will not attract a lot of wildlife to your property. Birds will usually flock to these trees to build nests. But the pods on them can be toxic to many animals, which is why they tend to stay away. You also won’t have to worry too much about diseases affecting coffee trees once they’re put into the ground. Our Kentucky coffee trees for sale aren’t susceptible to diseases or insects.
