Still-green coconuts

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 17 February 2005 | Views [2071]

Still-green coconuts have their heads and bottoms lopped off so they can sit comfortably on the small table whose legs disappear into the sand on this beach.

The top is shaved off to leave a little round flap at the top of a gentle peak of softly fibered husk. Lifting the flap reveals soft, white coconut meat, so young and tender as to taste nothing like a coconut. I pierce this with a straw and find inside a huge well of clear liquid that’s cool. I’m not sure what it tastes of. I’d expected to find something slightly greasy, resembling coconut milk from a can, Is this the same as thinking that milk comes from a dairy factory, rather than a real cow? I’m not sure I like it either, but I’m happy to pay my 0.75cents just for the view from this low slung beach chair across Serendipity Beach.
