Coconuts are the next big thing. At least, they are on this blog. I’ve already sung the praises of coconut water and coconut oil , but this time, I’m devoting a whole week to the deliciousness and versatility of the craziest fruit/nut/seed in existence.

Cracking a coconut and drinking its contents has long been a practice in the city’s South Asian and Hispanic communities. And coconut water marketed as a natural sports drink, like One Natural Experience (O.N.E.) and Vita Coco, has been in stores like Whole Foods for the last several years.
But young people walking around the city toting a three-pound coconut that is usually relegated to the beaches of Phuket seems to be a new phenomenon.
