A coconut is not really a nut but the stone fruit of the coconut palm. This coconut has a brown, hairy shell with white flesh on the inside. The fruit also contains coconut water, but much less than the drinking coconut.

Storage advice Coconut

In the store

Coconuts should be stored, before sale, at a temperature of 12 to 15 degrees Celsius.

At home

Store whole coconuts at room temperature. Pieces of coconut are best kept in the refrigerator to avoid discolouration.

Usage tips Coconut

Coconut flesh is delicious to eat on its own, but it can also be grated or pressed into coconut milk. Coconut milk and grated coconut are frequently used in soups, sauces and stews.

Extra tip for the consumer
Grated coconut is delicious as a garnish for a fruit salad or in desserts.

Maturity / Freshness Coconut

By shaking the coconut you can hear whether it still contains any coconut water. The coconut water gradually disappears during the ripening process, leaving the flesh drier.
