fresh coconut

coconut. The brown husked coconut is rusty brown and covered with hairy brown fibers, the thick fibrous husk of the coconut encases an inner shell. A layer of somewhat dry white meat lines the interior shell and holds liquid called coconut water. Offering a distinct flavor all of its own, it has a nutty almost candy-like sweetness. Look for coconuts that are heavy for their size with enough juice that you can hear an audible sloshing sound.
