Although the appearance is not different from other types of coconut when you split the coconut you will see the difference. Wax coconut is also known as dense coconut, coconut rice is thick, soft, flexible and more fragrant than regular coconuts. As for the thickened coconut water, the viscosity remains clear, which is a feature that only waxy coconuts have.
In particular, a waxy coconut tree has only about 20% of the coconut being waxy. Moreover, because in Vietnam, coconut can only be grown in Tra Vinh, it becomes unique, the price is not cheap, and it must be in season to have it.
A greasy waxy coconut costs more than 100,000 – 200,000 VND ($1=25,000 VND). People often use coconut wax to process into ice cream, smoothies … to cool off in the summer, but the most popular is coconut wax soaked in milk. This dessert is also one of the favorite dishes of Miss H’Hen or vlogger Giang Oi.
