Coconuts:  Production, Processing, Products

Every now and then, WU strives to find a video or book or practice so boring that it merges into true weirdness. I think 311 pages on the humble coconut might qualify. Learn about the ten different cuts of coconut meat, and so much more!

I don't care for coconut. It has no taste or flavor for me, even after all the processing. It's just there. It's like the old story of the first person to try an olive straight off the tree and finding it palatable. Who would have done that?

KDP - Desperation most likely. "The bravest man I ever saw... Was the first to eat an oyster raw."

@KDP: someone who doesn't share your taste, most likely. To me, the flesh tastes pleasantly, and not too, sweet, and the water is refreshing. Mind you, this is very much before any processing, straight from the nut.

(As for the old story, that was originally about an oyster. Olives, fresh off the tree, are also quite another thing.)
