The Chinese supermarket off London Road may stock them. although I've never noticed them. May have a look myself - I love those coconuts. Holiday memories...!

Those pictures are all prepared coconuts.
That means they are no longer fresh. The nut stays alive until it's cut in that manner. As soon as it's done, it starts to go off.
They need to be cut as you buy them.

Seems a little odd to me now as they grow wild outside the house so I get them free if I want them.

I agree but they are much fresher then the brown ones in the supermarket .
