Re: Hot NOW KY Coffee Trees


??Hmmm....
Washington was president from 1789-1797 and died 2 yrs later in 1799 at 67.
Kentucky became a state in 1792.  I wonder when he got around to planting
those KY coffee trees.  Most likely before he became president.  So if there
wasn't  a state when he planted them, I wonder what Washington called them?
Gymnocladus dioicus maybe?
