Baby coconuts are available year round.
Baby coconuts resemble mature coconuts in appearance but are roughly the size of a marble. They average no more than one inch in diameter. The Baby coconuts have an edible, brown, very smooth skin covering a firm, wood-like shell. The nuts are sweet, with firm, white meat inside that has a coconut flavor and a crunchy texture.
Eleven Baby coconuts provide 4 grams carbohydrates, 1 gram protein, 3 grams dietary fiber and some iron. Cholesterol-free, one serving of eleven Baby coconuts contains about 110 calories and 90 fat calories.
Baby coconuts may be eaten whole, raw, or cooked. Whole or chopped baby coconut may be added to salads or grated over desserts. Pair with ice cream, custards and tropical fruits. Store at room temperature until ready to use.
Baby coconuts, also called mini coconuts, dwarf coconuts, coquito nuts, coker nuts, pygmy coconuts or monkey's coconut, are the fruit of a Chilean palm tree, Jubaea chilensis, which takes up to fifty years to produce. Native to the coastal valleys in Chile that do not have extremes of either cold or heat, this palm tree now grows worldwide in Mediterranean-type climates including the state of California. Sometimes candied, they are eaten raw or made into confections.
