Coconut Sprout



I’m sure that this coconut sprout is no stranger to most of you. This is associated with my childhood memory. I belong to an agricultural family and we used to raise coconut in our nursery. We call it ‘’ Gongu “ in Konkani and Pongu in Malayalam. The flesh of coconut sprout is soft, spongy, sweet as well as slightly salty in nature.

Today, I saw a street side vender selling this. I immediately bought couple of them.

hello... would you know the added health benefits of coconut sprouts? there's not much material from the web... i'm thinking if sprouting seeds of vegetables are said to be more nutritious than the vegetable itself, the coconut sprout may have added benefits as well... thanks for the post :-)

Can you please tell me what was the price and where did you buy(inside which city, town or village)? I need this because I am trying to bring them in to departmental stores and make them available regularly. This info will help me a lot in my effort
