Green water coconuts are between 7 and 9 months old when harvested. They are shipped with husk intact and are very large. The coconut’s outer layer (exocarp) is smooth, green, and very hard. Green water coconuts are harvested at this stage primarily for their ample water content which is sweet and refreshing. The meat (often known as “jelly meat”) found within is thin, gelatinous, and easily scoop-able.
