How to Tell If a Coconut Is Ripe?

Answer

The easiest way to tell if a coconut is ripe is by cutting it open and inspecting it. If you are at the store and buying a coconut, do the shake and smell test. Shake the coconut to listen to the milk content. If there is no milk, it's not ripe. Smell the coconut, it shouldn't have a foul odor.
