Only if I'm constipated. My rule is to drink the water from green coconuts and eat the meat from brown coconuts.
question: can you drinkbthe milk in a green, then let it age until the meat is edible?

No, it rots after you puncture the husk.

Re: coconuts

TAS,

I lived in Hawaii for 3 years, a LONG time ago. I suggest you take a vacation there (to Oahu) and visit Polynesian Cultural Center. In short order you will get a VERY good education on the subject. After Hawaii I spent time at many tropical islands and had all the snacks I could eat!

If that vacation is out of the question, YouTube is your friend..... ;-)

By the way, I never used more than a wooden stake & a rock to open them (YES, including removing the husk) in less than 2 min.

Greg

Re: coconuts

we have 4 kinds of cocos here inbarra de navidad, and i know of 2 kinds inmazatlan.
inmazatlan i harvested all colors and stages of ripening except the jelly nut''i kept missing that phase...i am still working on that.
i have a bowie knife i use to open cocos. i peel em then i break the hard shell and eat the meat after i drain out the liquid into a cup or glass.
good for cooking, add to pina colada instead of fake stuff... drink it plain.. many uses for the stuff inside. baking --coco meat....add to fruit salad. fresh coco is good in all phases of its development, as long as seed is growing, it is edible..it is also edible when brown. the sponge inside each ripened coco is awesome delicious.

nothing like a fresh mango pina colada with fresh coco, fresh mangos, and fresh pineaple,and decent caribean rum.
