Brown Coconuts

Brown Coconut

This is the part of the coconut where you’ll find the “meat” or flesh. Coconut meat is versatile and can be eaten raw, cooked, or used as a preserve.


Our coconuts arrive to you whole and unopened to preserve the quality of the fruit. If it’s your first time opening a coconut, it may appear a daunting task. Luckily, the reward (juicy, delicious coconut meat) is well worth the effort.

Here are a few steps to help make this task a little easier:

Place the coconut on a cutting board and locate the three eyes of the coconut. Of the three, only one will be soft.
Using a metal skewer, a Phillips head screw driver or even a nail and hammer, puncture a hole through the soft “eye”. It should puncture easily.
Drain any juices into a bowl. Do not discard the juices. Instead, use them for drinking or cooking purposes.
Hold the coconut in one hand use a hammer with the other hand to hit along the perimeter (the middle of the coconut) while continuing to rotate the coconut. This should form a clean crack around the midline, and now you should have two open halves to your coconut.
