9 coconuts (approximately 10 lbs.)
These peeled fresh coconuts contain both refreshing, potassium/electrolyte-laden coconut water and small amount of soft, jelly-like immature coconut meat. Drink the coconut water by itself or as part of a refreshing beverage, and use the meat in salads and diced or blended into beverages.
Coconut water is fat free, delicious, and a great way to rehydrate after strenuous physical activity. It offers potassium, minerals and electrolytes in quantities that can exceed popular brands of sports drinks. An extremely popular beverage in Central America, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific.
Each coconut can contain up to two cups of water, plus a small amount of meat.
Store fresh coconut in your refrigerator.
For long term storage of fresh coconuts, we recommend harvesting all the coconut water and freezing it, perhaps with the flesh mixed in.
Up to a month unopened. Once opened, the coconut water will stay fresh for up to a week.
RECIPES & TIPS
Coconut water is a refreshing beverage all by itself, but can also be combined with other ingredients for additional flavors and nutritional benefits. Try adding petals from Szechuan buttons to your coconut water to impart an exciting electric zing to every sip (how to infuse szechuan buttons).
