King Coconuts are indigenous to Sri Lanka, the small island that sits just off the southern tip of India. This is where most King Coconuts are grown; however, they can be found growing on other islands in Indonesia. In Sri Lanka, the coconuts grow without any human intervention and are often found in the wild. They are primarily found in an area called the “Coconut triangle” which stretches between three cities in the island country. King coconut water production is considered to be more sustainable than that of the young green coconuts, which are harvested before the flesh and husk is developed enough for use. Since 2015, various companies from Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom have been selling King coconut water and its use has increased in other areas of the globe. King coconuts are generally only available in Sri Lanka and in some areas of Indonesia.they tops of 20 to 30-meter-tall palm trees, which are a bit shorter than other coconut palm varieties. They grow in clusters of up to 20 nuts, growing from smaller branches on a large stalk. King coconuts have an elongated oval shape, much like a football, with a pointed end opposite of the stem. The skin has a bright orange hue, and it may have the occasional dark mark or abrasion. King coconuts measure from 20 to 30 centimeters in length. They are harvested at around 7 to 8 months of maturity, which is about twice the age of a typical, young green coconut. The sweet and flavorful liquid within the nut contains electrolytes and minerals that mirror the needs of the human body. The liquid is hydrating, refreshing and has a cooling effect on the body. Seasons/Availability King coconuts are available year-round. #coconut #coconutwater #nariyalpani #coco #chef #vickyratnani #vickythegastronaut #srilanka #srilankatravel #food #sustainableliving #sustainability #food #healthy #vegan #clickoftheday #tbt #tasty #foodporn #foodphotography #foodie #streetstyle King coconuts are used primarily for their “milk” or the liquid contained within its rind. #gourmetgyanbyvicky #delish #delicious #wholefoods #real #truth

It is round or oval in shape with light green or light yellow skin, and the colour of its flesh varies from white or pink to dark red and has edible seeds. Besides its unique flavour and fragrance, guava has been hailed as one of the super fruits due to the numerous health benefits it offers. It indeed is a powerhouse of nutrients. “This humble fruit is extraordinarily rich in vitamin C, lycopene and antioxidants that are beneficial for skin. Guavas are also rich in manganese which helps the body to absorb other key nutrients from the food that we eat. Guavas benefits are credited due to the presence of folate, a mineral which helps promote fertility. The potassium in guavas helps normalise blood pressure levels as well. In fact, a banana and a guava contain almost the same amount of potassium #guava #fruit #picoftheday #instagood #vickyratnani #vickythegastronaut #sweet #juice #nectar #tbt #shotoniphone #mumbai #india #streetstyle #streetfood #food #foodporn #foodphotography #superfood #trending #whatshot #dessert

Mosambi (sweet lime) juice is a rich source of vitamin C To reap the benefits, consume freshly squeezed mosambi juice with pulp Here are 15 reasons you need to drink mosambi juice daily Mosambi (sweet lime) is a citrus fruit, which has many points of origin, straight from Indonesia to China. But according to a 2004 report published in the Agriculture Review, the origin of Mosambi points to the hills of Meghalaya and Nagaland. You’ll usually spot people drinking a refreshing glass of Mosambi juice spruced up with chaat masala and kala namak during the scorching months of summer. Mosambi in fact contains less acid than ordinary limes, and is thus praised for its mild and palatable flavour. It’s slightly difficult to eat sweet lime as is due to its overabundant seeds and thick rind. But sweet lime juice, on the other hand, is downright divine. It tastes exactly as it sounds - it’s ‘sweet’ and yet retains the same essence as a ‘lime’ (sans the mouth-puckering effect). #india #sweetlime #mosambi #tbt #clickoftheday #likes #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #likeforlikeback #follow #repost #vickyratnani #vickythegastronaut #sweet #cute #picoftheday #sexy #fruit #local #seasonal #city #popular #highlight #coldpressedjuice

#undiscoveraustralia It’s not just about beaches . #tasmania is a heaven for food lovers. I discovered Tasmania and fell in love with it . Mu first visit to Hobart was when I was a chef with a Cunard Line in the 90’s . #Hobart , capital of Australia's island state of Tasmania, sits on the River Derwent. At its fashionable Salamanca Place, old sandstone warehouses host galleries and cafes. Nearby is Battery Point, a historic district with narrow lanes and colonial-era cottages. The city's backdrop is 1,270m-high Mount Wellington, with sweeping views, plus hiking and cycling trails. #vickythegastronaut #chef #cheflife #travel #instagood #instalike #australia #truffle #lavender @larkdistillery #huonvalley
