Is there an 'easy' method to tell the difference between Arabica 
& Robusta cherries? I have several houseplant coffee trees, 
acquired via online sources & at local stores,  that have been 
fruiting. The only marker on the plants was "coffee tree".

Comparing the beans to those harvested from the Red Catuai trees 
grown from the seeds Tom sent out years ago, these appear larger 
& on occasion have triple beans. The plant leaves appear similar 
in size / shape though.

ideas??
