Whole coconuts can be difficult to open. Some are sold with small cracks already. A few taps around the tips with a hammer should open a coconut.
Choose coconuts that are heavy. They should have no soft or moldy spots on the "eyes.” If you shake the coconut, you may be able to hear liquid inside.
Store whole coconut on the counter for a few months. Once opened, refrigerate in a plastic bag. Opened coconut keeps for up to one week.
