Young coconut

A young coconut is one which is not hairy or has turned dark brown yet. The EAT ME young coconut has been cut into a distinctive pointed cylinder shape. The coconut water from the young coconut is nice to drink and has a sweet and refreshing flavour. The flesh is soft and easy to scoop out. The flesh is also deliciously sweet.

Young coconut growth & journey

The young coconut plantations are located in an estuary which has developed due to river silt deposits at the coast caused by the virtual absence of ebb and flow (i.e. brackish water). Such a location is also known as a delta. Young coconuts require brackish water in order to grow, due to the minerals which come from what was originally seawater. It's these minerals that make the coconut water so good for you.
The first fruits can be harvested four years after planting a young
coconut tree. A single tree can be harvested around 4 times a year, for
20 years. Young coconuts are harvested on days 20 and 21, because
that's when the sugar content is optimal. Harvesting is done using a
long stick with a hook and a knife. The bunches of coconuts are cut
free using the knife, brought down on the hook, and then laid in a small waterway nearby in their bunches. These bunches are transported along the waterways in the plantation until they reach a truck; they then travel by truck to the packaging warehouse. Once at the warehouse, specialised staff sort the coconuts according to quality, cut them into cylinders and wrap them. The produce is then transported by boat to Nature's Pride.
