Coconut (Mature)

Coconut (Mature)

Mature coconuts are the brown "hairy" coconuts that most people are familiar with. A quality mature coconut is heavy and full of water that can be heard when shaken. If a coconut is light or empty, there is probably a crack in the shell. The three "eyes" on the shell should be checked to ensure there is no mold.

Once opened, a coconut can be stored in the fridge for only a few days. Keep in the freezer for longer storage.
