How to choose a coconut?

There are two bright sides when buying a coconut: its delicious flesh and its refreshing water!

However, it can be tricky to pick the right fruit well hidden with its shell. Follow our tips to never buy the wrong coconut!

The weight and the filling

To be sure that your coconut is fresh, the first thing to do is to weigh it. The more it contains water, the heavier it is.

Then, shake it near your ear: you should ear the water inside. This garantees freshness and a tasty flesh. You'll just have to sip this fresh water before eating the flesh!

The appearance

Brown coconuts have dark spots on their bottoms, looking like eyes. Those have to be clean and neat. In any way, there shouldn't be any mold or cracks on the shell.
