Thailand: “Taste of the Tropics” available year roundExoriens works closely together with the farmers of Ratchaburi province in Thailand to ensure that their tradition of coconut cultivation delivers the tastiest, most healthy and natural young coconuts in the world.
Young coconuts have delighted travelers to the tropics for thousands of years. Their sweet, refreshing water is the most reliably potable thirst quencher to be found; and their pervasiveness is testament to man’s love for them. With modern refrigeration technology, this "Taste of the Tropics" is now available year round to coconut lovers all over the world.
In Thailand, people of Ratchaburi province sell locally grown coconuts on antique boats at the world famous Damneon Saduak Floating Market. As the locals will tell you, it’s no secret that the "Nam Hom" coconuts of Ratchaburi province are the tastiest in the world. A combination of perfect growing conditions, the local variety of coconut palm, and careful cultivation techniques passed down through the generations produce a completely unique and superior taste.
Young coconuts grow in bunches on fronds, taking approximately six months from flowering until they are ready to harvest for drinking. A healthy coconut tree will produce new shoots every twenty days, meaning that a mature tree will produce a bunch (between ten and fifteen coconuts) that can be harvested every three weeks. Only the coconut farmer knows the exact number of days for his trees’ coconuts to be ready - when the meat inside will be just the right thickness, and the desired taste will stay with the coconuts after harvesting.
Thai coconut farmers have developed a unique irrigation system for their young coconut plantations, using a pump installed on a small boat to water the palms – which are grown on raised beds alternating with shallow water ditches. This healthy plantation format allows them to grow reliably high-quality nuts with maximum yield. The farmers will grow their prized “Nam Hom” (meaning "Aromatic Water") palms in isolation, to prevent cross-pollination from other palm varieties.
