It is hardened both outside (its shell) and inside - there is practically no coconut milk, and the fact that there is no longer as tasty as in young coconuts. And the flesh of the old coconut is already absolutely solid. Such coconuts in the tropics are used only for the manufacture of coconut chips or cosmetics, the same coconut oil. It is impossible to make it from a young, green coconut - its pulp is soft and soft, not yet soaked with coconut milk. In the old, brown coconut milk is much less because it is almost all absorbed into the pulp of the coconut, saturating it with its fat content and nutritional value. All this in this case, we are only at hand with you - we need the old brown coconut. So, we take the brown coconut. On one side it has three dark holes.
