mel vs. coquito

this curious nut, the coquito (or cockernut) is native to south america. it is macadamianut-sized and has a very hard shell. the palm nut itself is hollow and has a bite. (it's harder than an almond)

it looks and tastes just like a miniature coconut! i love it, but i can't eat many of those (they are a little on the oily side). these nuts are hard to find here and the only option to get them is through mailorder...

i came across this double nut! two in one: it's a twin!
