I just read about this company that has organic Young Thai Coconuts. I don't have any experience with them at all, but wanted to share the info...

Looks like you'd have to order at least 16-18 coconuts. How could you eat that many before they went bad? Would you freeze them or share an order with someone else?

Just my critical thinking here...
But how do we know that these are actually organic?
I guess we could ask the same question about any organic produce though.. hmm...
I would really like to order these though. Anybody in the Vancouver area that would like to share an order?

I'm just wondering how they get the across borders w/out spraying. They may start out organic yet, does the spraying at the border negate that?

Well, what do we know about food crossing borders? Do they have to be sprayed or "nuked" legally, even if they are organic? Anyone know? With so much of the produce, coming from foreign countries, I'm starting to wonder.

This is exactly why I'm only partial to organic foods grown locally. If I have to purchase something that isn't from a local farm...I don't bother with organic...there is no point to me. (This is just my opinion of course.) It's not that I'm not doing the best I can for me...but rather, I'm not throwing my money away on the higher prices if I can't have someone confirm for me that what I'm getting is truly organic. Local farms can give you that...big chains where you don't know someone personally that you can trust could say anything.
This is why I don't sweat the whole Almond issue. I buy raw nuts from our local health food store and I eat them knowing...it's honestly the best I can hope for...they are the only place in town that even offers the option and they are expensive enough. I can't afford to order in 100. worth of coconuts, so, I will purchase two a week like always for $4 and thank God that my grocery store actually knows what a Thai coconut is. :p
If you can afford things like this site, more power to you...get the best. If you can't, just don't sweat the little things. Stay Raw...Eat what's available and affordable to you. ;)
