(Young&Old Coconut Comparison )


Young Coconuts are best for drinking and are a great source of hydration that can also be used in smoothies, slushies and other tropical drinks.

To ensure you get the best young coconut, look for coconuts that are heavy and free of cracks, mold, or soft wet spots. When you give it a shake, there shouldn't be much sloshing, as you want it to be full of liquid with no air inside.

Old or brown coconuts on the other hand, are mature fruits from the coconut palm. The outer shell has a coarse, brown, hair-like texture, while inside, there's a cavity filled with clear juice, known as coconut water (not coconut milk), and a layer of firm white meat. The coconut water is slightly sweet and salty and is loaded with natural electrolytes, while the meat is dense, rich, and chewy.
