macroburg, COCONUTS ARE AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND ESPECIALLY IN SOUTH INDIA. WE CONSUMERS BUY THEM AFTER THE THICK OUTER HUSK IS REMOVED. THEN YOU SHAKE THE COCONUT NEAR YOUR EAR. IF YOU HEAR THE WATER INSIDE SLOSH, THEN YOU SHOULD GO FOR ONE FROM WHICH YOU DO NOT HEAR THE WATER. HOWEVER IN OUR HOT TROPICAL COUNTRY, THE TENDER COCONUT IS SOLD FOR ITS DELICIOUS WATER TOO. IT NEEDS A KNACK TO SLICE A BIT OFF THE TOP, PUSH A DRINKING STRAW THROUGH AND SIP NATURE'S CHAMPAGNE AT ITS BEST.

What is the seasonal growth period? Seems like they aren't available except around the Xmas Season. And, how does one pick the best one?

COCUNUT PULP IS GROUND INTO PASTE AND IS USED IN CURRIES AND OTHER SOUTH INDIAN DISHES, IT ALSO MAKES A DELICIOUS CHUTNEY. COCONUT OIL IS A COOKING MEDIAM IN THE INDIAN STATE OF KERALA AND ALSO IN SRILANKA. MOST SOUTH INDIAN WOMEN USE COCONUT OIL ON THEIR HAIR. IT IS SAID THAT EVERY SINGLE PART OF THE COCONUT PALM TREE IS USED AND VERY USEFULLY TOO.

Coconut husks (slightly crushed) are also good in your garden. Like egg shells they help keep the slugs and snails away!

David Holmes, Would rather use the coconut as garlic will kill me. Am severely allergic to garlic. It has a high concentration of sulfur. i.e. sulfa

Concerning the first one, as "nut" is also slang for the head, that means it's a nut nut!

As beneficial as they are I do not like the taste, nor the smell of anything with coconut oil!

I have seen young men and boys climbing palms with a rope loop around their waist and and the tree to harvest the nuts. Smouldering coconut fibre is quite effective at repelling mosquitoes. Garlic in one's food helps to keep them off as well.
