This was a quiz on Facebook

What are these?

Manzanita de Coco -or- Coconut Apple

They grow inside

I wondered why you never see them in fresh coconut and with a little research I find they only grow in older coconuts. Leave a coconut full of water (milk) sit for 8-10 months and these will grow. They are popular in Colima and Michoacan.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
