I have always like coconut. I buy a package of shredded coconut, sit down and eat a lot of it at one time. I like coconut cake.
If you buy a coconut in the shell, be prepared to have quite a time in cracking the shell. Once you do, the effort is worth it. You will see a little bit of liquid inside. Pour it into a glass and drink it.
Coconut can mean the fruit or the palm tree.
