Peaberry, known in Spanish ascaracolillo, is a type ofcoffeebean. Normally the fruit ("cherry") of thecoffee plantcontains two seeds ("beans") that develop with flattened facing sides, but sometimes only one of the two seeds is fertilized, and the single seed develops with nothing to flatten it. This oval (orpea-shaped) bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans harvested have experienced this small mutation.
