"Kona coffee blooms in February and March. Small white flowers cover the tree and are known as “Kona Snow”. In April, green berries begin to appear on the trees. By late August, red fruit, called “cherry” because of the resemblance of the ripe berry to a cherry fruit, are starting to ripen for picking."
