The brown Husked coconut is rusty brown and covered with hairy brown fibers. The thick fibrous husk of the coconut encases an inner shell and holds liquid called coconut water. It has a nutty almost candy-like sweetness. Look for coconuts that are heavy for their size with enough juice that you can hear an audible sloshing sound. The eyes, or indentations, should be uniformly brown and firm. The husk should be dry and without mold. Even with these signs, it is often best to buy more than one coconut as it is difficult to determine a good coconut.
