Our medium shredded coconut is harvested from that fleshy part of the coconut.

Medium shredded coconut is a versatile size of this product, but we offer two other raw coconut meat variations, as well as a host of other coconut options:

Scientifically referred to as Coco Nucifera, coconuts are found in tropical regions along both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, including the Indian Ocean, South Pacific, Hawaiian Islands and the Caribbean. Fun fact: If you want to put some stamps on a coconut and mail it across the country, the United States Postal Service will deliver it.
