The Maragogipe variety was first found by Crisógono José Fernandes in 1870 in the municipality of Maragogipe in the state of Bahia, hence its name. The origin of the Maragogipe variety occurred through a natural mutation of the Typica variety.
Maragogipe is a variety known for its low productivity, which has restricted its cultivation, so it has become a very rare variety.
