I'm sure it'll taste much fresher when drinking straight from a tree! And I think king coconut tastes better than coconut water. We don't drink coconut water here much, other than for medical purposes. But king coconut water is very popular. The best way to enjoy it is to drink straight from the coconut, without even pouring it into a cup :)

I think that is amazing. I love drinking coconut water, but I wonder what it tastes like straight from a tree instead of a package. XD

We have multiple of them here. Coconut trees are not rare in a spacious Sri Lankan garden.
This one is still young, about 1 meter tall.

I love that you just have a coconut tree in your backyard. :)
