It is equivalent to the cost of a similar quantity of pasteurized packaged Organic coconut water & Organic Coconut Chunks harvested and packed months earlier.

Harvested Fresh but are mature, so they need to be opened with machete or Coconut opener machines.
Many of our trees are green Malay coconut and a few orange Malay varieties with a refreshing sweet taste.
With numerous health benefits and a great taste, it is no wonder that so many people enjoy bottled coconut water. But the Packaging process:
loses the nutrition and taste due to oxidation
loses the good bacteria, nutrients, and electrolytes by pasteurization
adds artificial flavors
So Nature's fresh fruit is the best.
Even the ubiquitous "Thai Coconuts" are not the best option as:
They are harvested 2-3 months earlier, often before maturing; hence the peak nutrients and taste are missing
They are peeled (for lower cost of transportation and ease of opening by consumers) - but then they oxidize through the peeled hard shell. To reduce oxidation and conserve moisture, these "Thai Coconuts" are often plastic wrapped.
Each "Thai coconut" expends valuable carbon due to traveling from the other side of the world
large monoculture coconut plantations emit much carbon, and old-growth forests (that store carbon) are often destroyed to make way for these plantations.
often they are not organically grown or ethically harvested with child (or even monkey) harvesters, an issue
The ideal would be to have a coconut from your backyard - but that is a paradise few have in North America. The next best would be to have USA-grownJuicing Coconuts grown.
Our Pine Island, FL Farmis possibly the largest Coconut farm in the USA, and we have pioneered large-scale coconut farming in the USA. We are the only Certified Organic Coconut farm in mainland USA.
Many people find that the Tender Whole Coconut :
is too difficult to open
is too heavy and unwieldy to carry around
Once they are older, the inside shell starts hardening, making it difficult to open easily with a small knife or with this Brazilian tool.Then you would need a machete, a large knife, or even a drill to get to the sweet water.
