Sprudgie Award winner Rachel Peterson of Hacienda La Esmeralda in the Boquete District of Panama posted this bombshell of a picture on social media this week:


“World’s biggest coffee cherry?”

Peterson posed this question via Facebook. No further information was given. This caused a viral frenzy online as Hacienda La Esmeralda fans worldwide tried to figure out what in the hell it was!

Is it a genetic mutation of Hacienda La Esmeralda’s legendary Geisha coffee

Is it an anomalous large cherry from this season’s harvest?

Is it something more sinister?

Turns out, it’s just a tamarillo (tree tomato) and Rachel Peterson was epically trolling hard.
