I was going to say that I thought there's something wrong with that coconut, but I see that someone says its germinating. Wouldn't matter to me, don't like coconut. Oh, I might have to learn to gag it down if I were stuck on a deserted island, but otherwise I won't eat them.

I have that in my garden too and I like its taste.The coconut however loses its taste if this is found. This is the process of germination.

My grandfather had a coconut farm and we used to go there during vacation. My grandfather would surprise us with this "tubo" as we call it. Yes it's really delicious and seeing this picture makes me remember my childhood days. Oh, your make me cry pearlee. I miss the days when I don't have problem yet and I just spend my time playing. Unlike now, it seems that every problem of the country is my problem also. But that's just it, life is what we make it. Have a nice day!

OMgosh I know this! I always spend my summer break at my grandparents' farm and we have lots of coconut trees. Whenever it's harvest time, they will pile the coconuts separately depending on types and then there are piles where coconuts with this thing on it. They told me it's delicious and it's edible but I know I refused to taste t because when I asked what it's called, it sound so funny and gross. I have no other dialect but Tagalog, and I forgot what it's called. LOL!
