I just got back from Hawaii and saw some lovely coconuts!

Code. And not code.

Botanically speaking, a coconut is a fibrous, one-seeded drupe.

On my trip, I didn’t see any hairy, brown, and hard “drupes.” You know, the coconuts you can buy at Safeway on the mainland.

I learned that a fresh, young coconut is green. When you visit a roadside stand, you can drink from one. And sip the splendor that is coconut milk. And if you’re lucky, after you’ve had your fill, a Hawaiian native will take his machete and carve off the outer layer, to expose the juicy meat of the coconut for you to partake.

Ah, coconuts. Island style.
