There are a lot of coconuts in my country, but I don't know how each part of it is called in English.
A coconut has a green 'cover' then another hard 'cover' then there is coconut juice inside and the white thing.
Can you describe me all coconut's parts ?

Husk, shell, meat, milk.

The exocarp and mesocarp make up the "husk" of the coconut. Coconuts sold in the shops of nontropical countries often have had the exocarp (outermost layer) removed. The mesocarp is composed of a fiber called coir.

My daughter worked her first four years as a professional in Makawao, Maui County, Hawai'i on the slopes of Haleakala.

Thanks Doug but still one more yellowish part, especially inside old coconuts, is that the coconut's child or its big soft nut ?

"Newly germinated coconuts contain an edible fluff of marshmallow-like consistency called coconut sprout, produced as the endosperm nourishes the developing embryo."

I don't like it when native speakers seem to know everything about the world. Bye Doug. Good day! :D
