10 Steps: How to Harvest Coconut Water in a Dominican Republic Backyard

By Vanessa Taranto

Fresh Coconuts. They are all around us. Just look up into the trees, nestled high above in their own canopy you will find them. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. It is a plentiful site on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. If you are lucky enough to have traveled or lived in a tropical area they become common place. I have come to know them as a symbol of Paradise. Growing up in the Canadian cold, I smile and feel happy when I see them. Some consider them dangerous (they can drop on your head), but for centuries they have been known as one of the most enriching foods known to man. Do you know that they were even used as emergency blood transfusions in WWII? What are they? Coconuts!.

The Palm trees are full of coconuts just waiting to being cracked and opened to release their amazing nutrients held in their liquid and in the meat of the coconut..

So what are you waiting for? Watch this introductory video of how to Harvest Coconut Water from Fresh Coconuts.
