The young coconut is a coconut of which the outside is not yet hairy and dark brown. The flesh is soft and pudding-like, not crunchy like an adult coconut. When you buy it in the store, the green skin is already gone and it is cut in a characteristic cylindrical shape with a tip.
Did you know that..
The coconut water of the young coconut is delicious to drink. From the flesh you can make your own coconut milk or delicious exotic smoothies! The taste is softer, less coconut-like than a ripe coconut. Choose the whitest one, the whiter the fresher. After opening, it can be kept in the fridge for a few days at most. It's better to store the flesh separately in a bag. You can also freeze it. When unopened, you can keep them a little longer, depending on how long they've been on the road and in the store. In the fridge or in a cool place.
