A semi-husked coconut is a coconut that has had some of its outer husk removed, leaving the hard inner shell intact. This type of coconut is often sold in grocery stores and markets, particularly in tropical regions where coconuts are common.
Semi-husked coconuts are typically easier to handle than fully-husked coconuts because they have a flat base that allows them to stand upright. They are also easier to open, as the partially removed husk exposes some of the shells, making it easier to crack or cut.
One of the main uses for semi-husked coconuts is for drinking fresh coconut water inside. The top of the coconut can be cut or drilled to create a hole through which the water can be drunk with a straw or poured out. The coconut meat inside can also be eaten or used in cooking.
