A coconut can be eaten even before it is ripe and the milk is sweet. When the coconut has already turned green is when it is starting to ripen. After the green stage the outer shell will turn brown. At this stage it is ripe. It will continue to ripen & become over ripe as long as it's on the tree and starts to germinate.
