The guests come from the distant land and we have coconuts. It is used to drink milk, but also for dessert making and Far East dishes. In addition to being eaten as a fruit, the fleshy portion gives life to many foods.
Coconuts grown in the Philippines, India, Indonesia and Africa are small in size and oval in shape and covered in a hard shell. Underneath the shell is a coconut milk made of matte white, with a high water-repellent, sweet liquid. When the fruit is ripened, it is covered with a flesh and taste. The larger of the three dark spots on the shell is pierced and the milk is reached. This is the place where the sprout of the fruit is rooted. The coconut's fibrous shell allows the fruit to float in water. This feature has allowed coconut to spread easily from the Southeast Asia to the entire tropical climate zone by ocean currents.
