Brown coconut has a tropical taste with a sweet nutty flavor profile. The brown coconut contains a lot of meat which you can eat raw or serve in many savory dishes or baked goods.

The difference between a brown coconut and a green one is their age; the green coconuts are young and not yet fully ripe, while the brown ones are fully mature. The green coconuts have a much higher water content and less meat than the fully mature brown coconuts, and so they are typically consumed for their water while the brown coconuts are consumed for their meat. If you would like to order coconut for coconut water, we suggest ordering the green coconut.

Scientific Name: Cocos nucifera

Also Known As: Milk coconut, straw coconut, mature coconut

When/ How to Eat: You can consume the brown coconut by poking the holes with a screw driver and hammer and draining the water. After draining the coconut water, find the coconuts stress point (somewhere there is a visual crack or line). Hold the coconut firmly in your non-dominant hand, with the blunt side of a kitchen knife, hit the coconut along its equator. Each time you hit the coconut, rotate it slightly and hit again, repeat until the coconut cracks. To eat the meet you can simply scoop it out and it raw or prepare it any sweet or savory dish.
