Dry Coconuts / Mature Coconuts
Dry coconuts are mature, harvested when they are 11-12 months old. They still have water, 1/2 to 3/4 full, but these coconuts are primarily used for the hard meat or white flesh inside. The meat can be eaten raw in chunks or often it is grated and used on top of cakes or baked ham or a hundred other cooking recipes. It is also good blended and added to your favorite smoothie... The water is not as sweet as a young coconut but don't throw it way... Do something FUN..... make Ice Cubes..
XAGRO exports Caribbean Coconuts direct to your local supermarket ready for you to select and buy.
When selecting a dry coconut, first check the eyes to make sure that they are not leaking or damaged. A leaking eye indicates that the coconut water and meat inside has gone bad. Next give the nut a good shake. You should hear water, no water no purchase, the nut is too old. Remember, only purchase a Caribbean Coconut because only Caribbean Coconuts offers you a 100% money back guarantee. If your not happy, we are not happy.. Plain and simple..
Coconut Water / Young Coconuts
Water coconuts are harvest while they are young, usually only 6 or 7 month old. That is when the water inside has the highest sugar content so it is nice and sweet. These coconuts will still have the outer thick husk on them because the shell is not thick enough to support them. That is why you see the guy on the beach selling coconuts that have the husk shaved into a cool looking pyramid with a straw stuck in the top. The water is good for you and delicious.. so drink up.
At Caribbean Coconuts we drain the sweet water right after harvest and refrigerate it in 55 gallon barrels. Food and Drink processors then use this fresh coconut water to make you something refreshing. But what about the meat? Excellent question. The meat is like jelly and is considered a delicacy so use it in your smoothie, or mix it with yogurt, or just eat it plain.. Mmmmmm.
Coconut Chunks / The White Meat
Bakeries and candy bar manufactures need white coconut meat to add to your favorite treat so Caribbean Coconuts removes the hard shell and then grates the thin brown skin off leaving snow white, pure coconut meat. It is then frozen or vacuum packed and sent to food manufactures or the deli down the street. All the goodness of fresh coconut meat without the work. Life is good.

Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin Coconut Oil is derived from meat of matured coconuts. The production starts with freshly harvested coconuts that are de-husked and grated. Then, when the meat of the coconut is still fresh, it's cold pressed and filtered to remove any remaining pieces of the fruit.
That's the process. Nothing more.
Coconut Vinegar is a mew product for us.. more information coming soon.
Coconut Husks / Coconut Pith / Coir Fiber
Even the coconut husk has a use, in fact many uses. Luxury car seats and beds, rope, floor mats, brooms, and our favorite, planting material. Coconut husks hold 50% more water than plain soil so you conserve water while keeping your plants and vegetable garden happy. Here at Caribbean Coconuts we use the chipped coconut husks in the plantations. But since we cant use them all we also compact the coconut husks into big bales that are sent to manufactures across the world.
Activated Carbon / Charcoal
Just checking to see if your keeping up. Yes the coconut shell that is removed to make coconut chunks is used in water filters. In fact, activated carbon made from coconut shell is the best and is in high demand. Coconut shells are also used to make charcoal for your barbecue, or kitchen fire, depending on where in the world you live.
