How do you store coconuts so that they don't spoil easily?

Asked by chelle21689 (6913points) March 25th, 2010

I put them in the refrigerator but this guy told me to put it in a warm place. Is this true?

I have always stored the cut up pieces in the refrigerator in the milk, seems to stay fine to me!

The guy was like “You need to put it in a warm place! I’m from the tropics blah blah! I know coconuts” lol but online it talks about storing it in a cool place!

He just wants to get his hands on your coconuts.

I’ve never seen them refrigerated. The young ones you get off the tree have the green husk. You can pop those open and drink the milk, then scrape out the soft meaty flesh. When they get old, everything dries up and you’re left with a crunchy layer of coconut meat. They don’t really spoil easily, at least where I am. How long were you planning on keeping them, lol.

I have read that you can only keep the meat a couple of days in the refrigerator, it doesn’t make sense to me but that is what google told me (and who am I to argue with a google consensus!) So as they fall off the tree, I let my pup play with them because she is really good at dehusking them, then I crack them open, throw away the liquid because no one likes that (except the pup occasionally), strip the meat out (which is a hell of a job, anyone know an easy way???) then grate and freeze to put on cereal in the morning or munch on a handful for a snack anytime of day.
