We picked up a 'Tender coconut' from Geant Hypermarket. Its priced 350 fils per coconut. There was approximately 250 ml water in it, which was sweet and tasted great. That was not all. There was some tender soft flesh inside, which was quite nice to have. The flesh inside is very soft while the coconut is still young, before it would turn into a hard coconut with thick, white and hard flesh.
