Coconuts taste GREAT!
Besides the incredibly amazing experience one can have when eating coconuts, there are
many other reasons to eat this wonderful delicacy! In fact, the young coconut is one of
the most important fruits within the tropics because of its potassium and mineral rich
Preferably, the water and meat from young coconuts is used as
opposed to the meat of older coconuts which tends to be very hard (as well, older coconuts
typically have less water...if any.)

recently been reported to reduce the viral load of HIV.
Where to find Young Coconuts?
The difficult task is finding young coconuts. Most stores don't sell them, let alone even

they often are older coconuts with very little water and a hard meat. Young coconuts are
usually found in Asian markets or Mexican markets. For further information on where to buy
