World Coconut Day
Coconut is a popular fruit that is enjoyed all over the globe. It is delicious and healthy, and can be found in tropical areas. World Coconut Day celebrates all things related to this nutritious and delicious fruit!
Coconuts have been a staple food for humans for over 2,000 years. Coconut is probably a native Indian food. The name “walnut from India” refers to the coconut. Coconuts could have traveled across the Indian subcontinent, and even Africa in the early years of their existence, but they didn’t reach Europe until the 16th Century.
The Maritime Silk Road was likely to have brought coconuts to Europe via the Maritime Silk Road. This route connected the East and the West. Marco Polo could have been among the many travelers or explorers who brought coconuts back home with them.
The Asia Pacific Coconut Community (APCC), was established in 1969 to support and promote tropical countries that are highly involved in the production, sale, and export of coconuts. This group is located in Jakarta, Indonesia and keeps connected to the export and production of coconuts. The APCC members are responsible for more than 90% of all coconuts sold around the world through their scientific expertise and coordination activities.
World Coconut Day, which was established by the Asia and Pacific Coconut Community in 2009, aims to raise awareness about coconuts for all people.
World Coconut Day is a great opportunity for this important product from the Asia-Pacific region, to be discussed by people all over the globe.
It’s easy to get involved in World Coconut Day – you just need to enjoy and taste this delicious fruit. These are some ideas for celebrating the day:
Its brown, hairy exterior might make it seem intimidating to some people who aren’t familiar with this fruit. It is a delightful sight to smell once the white creamy flesh is exposed.
To begin, poke a hole in your coconut near the ‘eye,’ where the shell is thinnest. To make the hole, use a screwdriver/hammer and a straight nail. This will allow the coconut water to drain.
Pro Tip: Strain coconut water through cheesecloth into a cup and then enjoy!
After the juice is drained from the coconut, you can use a handsaw or a knife to cut the fruit in half. Others might prefer to place the coconut in a bag and bang on concrete or stone until it breaks. Although it is messy, this method works.
After the coconut has been opened, take out the meat and enjoy it fresh!
