Young Coconut

I have quite a few of raw recipes that call for "young coconut" and I have not been able to find one anywhere. I have tried some Indian, Chinese, Korean and some regular fruit markets and no luck yet. Does anyone know where I might find one of these? Thanks for any help!

  1. i bought one at marche P.A. on Fort a few months ago. It was placed close the the two express line cashes (in a refrigerated display for fruit). I'm not sure if they carry it regularly though.

        Was also at Hawaii yesterday and they have them for 1.49....some machete work required

          Yep. They might have it in either juice packets or other forms in the frozen section. You'll have to search though or ask for help because some of their stock changes.

      2. Thanks everyone for your help! I went to Marche Hawaii yesterday and there they were! What an amazing store! I made sure I went down every single aisle so that I wouldn't miss anything :) I bought 10 young coconuts!
