Cut with a machete, given a straw and spoon - to drink the juice out of the coconut, then scrape the flesh to eat. Priced equivalent of US65cents.

This is what I miss most about my trip to Malaysia5 months ago.

The best part of the coconut is the juice. It is hard to get to it. The closest I got to the real thing was florida and the grocery market.

The dessert of Arizona/southern Utah/Nevada is probably hotter temperature wise, but there's nothing to prepare you for the high humidity in tropical countries!

Coconuts that end up in grocery stores are predominately sold for the thick flesh which needs to be shaved off, which means they're aged on the tree. The drinnking coconuts are picked young, for that sweet juice and soft, delicate flesh. 8)
