Macapuno, kopyor or coconut sport is a naturally occurring coconutcultivar which has an abnormal development of the endosperm. The result of this abnormal development is a soft translucent jelly-like flesh that fills almost the entire central cavity of coconut seeds, with little to no coconut water. Macapuno was first described scientifically from wild specimens in 1931 by Edwin Copeland. They were first cultivated commercially in the Philippines after the development of the “embryo rescue” in vitro culture technology in the 1960s by Emerita V. De Guzman. It has become an important crop in coconut-producing countries and is now widely used in the cuisines of Southeast Asia, South Asia, and the Pacific Islands.
In Indonesia, it is known as Kopyor. And recently, my mom buy Kopyor and give it to my uncle. So my uncle made Ice Kopyor. It’s very suitable this hot weather.
Added some Longan and Syrup to make it very tasty.
