The Coconut is so diverse in its uses its hard to know where to start. Well, this item is more mainstream then some of the other items on my site. Just recently when I went to my post office I saw a lady bringing painted ones there of Florida landscapes and they were putting the postage right on the painted coconut how cool is that. I just gave you guys a business - all you have to do is purchase some Coconuts and put your artistic side to work.
Lets get down to business. The Oil is what makes it nutritious (and its a good oil, not bad), also it is loaded with fiber .
The inside of the Coconut is eaten raw. The older part of the nut is great for making cakes and desserts. A derivative is coconut milk that comes from the squeezing of the coconut with water. Let's not forget the unripe coconut (green or yellow depending on the season when you order) has a wonderful water inside which makes a great drink. Just cut the coconut open, put some ice cubes in there, and you're good to go. Some have been know to throw some other goodies in there as well!
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the keys. You are invited to vist our farm for free as a tropical fuit of the month customer. We grow for you !!
