Where To Buy Unhusked Coconuts In the Los Angeles Area???

HoundDogz | Jun 14, 201209:39 AM

Every time I see a coconut at a grocery store, whether an American, Asian or Mexican grocery they are already husked. This makes sense because in the US people like convenience and don't want to have to cut open a coconut with a husk on them. In other countries they don't always have such conveniences so you will find un-husked coconuts. I know at the Chinese store you can buy a case of coconuts that have the husk shaved or cut off to an extent and you see the white meat of it for lack of better terms but I'm looking for a full non-husked coconut locally.

If this is possible where in Los Angeles can I buy one? If I can't find one I wonder if in Tijuana I can. Coconuts don't grow in TJ but I imagine from the tropical parts of Mexico to the south maybe they truck them up to TJ. I don't go to TJ often but maybe next time I go to San Diego I could go across the border. But if I find one there can I bring one in or does the Department of Agriculture have struck rules preventing this? Or I could throw one over the wall, go back into SD and pick it up later! Nah risky they'll think I'm the Falcon and the Snowman or something messing with the Russians in Mexico.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You,
