Things to know about organic shredded coconut:
The coconut (Cocos nucifera) has been cultivated for over 3000 years. The flesh of the fruit is called copra and is contained in a 2-3 cm thick layer inside the 20-30 cm large nut. The hollow kernel is filled with coconut water. In the tropical climate between the 26th parallel (northern and southern latitude), the coconut palm thrives best. This needs at least an annual average temperature of 27 degrees (for comparison in 2020 the annual average temperature in Austria was 8.2 °C). A ripe coconut can weigh up to 2 kg. Coconut flakes have a fat content of between 55 % and 65 %. Therefore, oil can also be pressed from them. The following products, among others, are made from the flesh of the coconut: Coconut oil, coconut fat, margarine, coconut paste and dried coconut flakes.
The fruit of the coconut palm is not a nut in the botanical sense, it belongs to the edible stone fruits (e.g.: almonds, pistachios). The coconut can float in seawater for 100 days and still thrive after that. It is not very demanding on the quality of the soil. Only the temperature and humidity must be suitable.
