THE CATUAI VARIETY
The Catuai is a genetic cross between two natural Arabica mutations of yellow Caturra and Mundo Novo. The plant is highly productive compared to Bourbon, in part because of its small size, which allows plants to be closely spaced; it can be planted at nearly double the density. The plant’s shape allows for easier access to its cherries during harvesting. It is mainly characterized by great vigor and its low height; it is less compact than Caturra.
