30 Bananas a Day!

I am having a hard time finding organic young thai coconuts anywhere in my town. I have been eating 100% organic for the past few years, and I don't want to compromise my health by going back to conventional produce... So, I am wondering how important is it to buy organic young thai coconuts? How much of the pesticides can get past the shell? Is it safe to eat conventional coconuts?

Coconuts suck up whatever is in the ground around them. I living in Hawaii have eaten cocos from many different plants in various areas. Some are on organic farms, some live next to the ocean, and some are right next to GMO papaya fields. The ones that grow by the ocean are by far the sweetest(water wise), the organic farm ones have the best tasting meat, and the GMO-papaya-neighbor cocos have made me as sick as a dog(don't do that)!

So to answer your question, YES its important to get organic ANYTHINGS! You could always move to the tropics to make it easier ;)

Thanks so much!! I will definitely avoid the conventional ones then... My mom's side of the family is from Hawaii, and I still have some family there, including my sister who lives on Oahu... Maybe I will just need to take a trip to see her and feast on fresh coconuts :)

Good idea Emmy, I read a little while back that most of the thai baby coconuts you find in supermarkets have been dipped on formaldehyde to preserve them, you definitely don't want that stuff in your body ;)
