Profuse reseeding of Gesha under a plant. Gesha, as mentioned is in Ethiopia, located near Kefa where the Kaffa coffee of legend grows. It was collected by the FAO - Food and Agriculture Org. of the UN - as part of a diversity project and distributed to 3 locations: Lisbon, Africa and Costa Rica. 40 years ago the seed was brought to Panama and planted here and there, just a few trees. The Petersons planted it extensively on a plot that was damaged in La Nina storm, because it seemed most resistent to strong weather.
