does $1.98 per coconut sound high? don't they grow like weeds in the tropics?

Asian markets also have frozen coconut meat for very reasonable prices and very little work to get the meat

last time i went there was only one good one at the store but it was pretty obvious haha. I've only bought 2 my entire life..but they're crazy delicious and relatively easy to crack open once you get the hang of it. Thanks!

If you factor in transport and the fact that you can make a bikini top out of it (not impying you have moobs, just sayin') then it's a pretty good deal.

In columbus ohio, fresh young coconuts are 2 at the asian markets and 4 at whole foods. 1.98 sounds fair. I usually get over a pint of liquid from each. Mmmm havent had any in awhile. I think ill have to take a trip to the asian grocery soon.

Try checking out the big asian grocery stores near your area if you have any. The ones by my place have coconuts for $1 each!

In MA, I'm lucky if I find them for $2. $3 seems the norm around here, with $2.50 sometimes. I've seen $2 on "discount", but coconuts are not something I wanted to have be spoiled after cracking open (sadly all too common).

My only other advice is to work on your technique for picking good ones. :-) You should here plenty of water slosh if you shake it, and compared to another in the batch, it shouldn't feel light. Look for any obvious signs of rot, and avoid cracks in the shell if you can.

I think three bananas for one coconut sounds like a fair exchange rate :-P

Add shipping to your local megamart and $1.98 sounds pretty reasonable.
