Frequently Asked Questions
What can I do with a coconut shell?
A LOT. Looking for a new bikini top? Coconut shells. Need a very small hardhat? Coconut shells. Broken maracas? Coconut shells again. See? The possibilities are endless.
Is a coconut a nut?
Nope! Despite the name, coconuts are fibrous, one-seeded fruits called drupes. Other members of team drupe include peaches, nectarines, cherries, and dates.
How long does it take to grow a coconut palm tree?
So, here’s the thing: you can have a fully-grown palm tree in as soon as three years (yay!)--but, it won’t start to yield coconuts until somewhere around it’s sixth birthday (aww!). In fact, it can take as long as 15 years for a palm tree to really get going on coconut growth! And if you’re planning on growing one indoors, make sure you have a skylight, because these guys can grow up to 98 feet tall.
How did you decide on the Vita Coco Infused flavors you have?
We know they’re a little different from what you expect from a coconut water company. We wanted Vita Coco Infused to take people ‘there’ while still being completely delicious. The idea was to make a drink that was earthy, yet refreshing. We tried putting potting soil in lemonade but that didn’t work. Hannah in marketing had the brilliant idea of combining citrus with spice — and that’s how we got our flavors! Thanks, Hannah!
How do you read the best-by date?
Not the way you think—the best-by date, found at the top of every Tetra Pak, is dated 12 months from the production date, and is read as such: day/month/year.
What is Tetra Pak?
