Although it is called a coconut the fruit is actually a drupe not a nut. It is the largest seed in the plant kingdom. Young coconuts contain a clear liquid. This is known as coconut water.

Great job, it is very interesting article. I must congratulate the writer because he writes so well. I do agree that this tender coconut water has more nutrients than mature coconut water . If you feel craving to drink something cool or tasty, replace your other drinks with one glass of coconut water. The health benefits of coconut water are countless. I am very impressed with your article and I suggest everyone to read this article at least once.
