Additional Agronomic Information

Due to the low productivity of Maragogipe, Pacamara is considered a better option. Maragogype beans are especially large, and the plant also has unusually large spacing between internodes and leaf size.


information Lineage A natural mutation of Typica
information Genetic Description Bourbon-Typica Group (Typica-related)

A natural mutation of Typica discovered near the Brazilian city of Maragogipe in 1870. The mutation causes the beans, internode spacing and leaves to be especially large and is due to a single dominant gene.

Maragogipe is one of the parents of the variety Pacamara, and a related variety called Maracaturra (for more on Maracaturra, see Pacamara history).
