***Sprouted Coconut is currently available for Pre-Order. When placing a Pre-Order, this means the fruit you have ordered is not currently in season, or is extremely limited in season. Your pre-order holds your place in line on our wait list. When Sprouted Coconut comes into season and is ready to harvest, you will receive your order as soon as possible.***
Origin: Every coconut contains a layer of meat, around a pint of water, and a tiny seed the size of a pearl. After almost 6 months in the tree, the coconut will drop to the ground. After a few more months, the seed fills the coconut and starts consuming the meat. The meat becomes a thin crispy layer. This creates a big spongy mass that can have a flavor profile ranging from sweet and juicy to salty and savory. The texture is akin to cotton candy or sponge cake.
Flavor Profile: Each sprout tastes a bit different. Usually, the most flavor can be found in the outer skin of the embryo. In the Hawaiian islands, only the Alii (the kings) were allowed to eat it, and they would share the mana (energy) with hundreds of people. It is a very filling and satisfying food.
How To Eat: We recommend opening the coconut with a machete or a cleaver. (See video below for instructions on how to open).
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
