Mini nut

A miniature Cayman coconut, that fell off the tree much sooner than it should have, that also reminds me of my childhood. There'd be umpteen amounts of these in our backyard in Bombay. Our neighbours had rows of coconut trees in their backyard which unrestricted, also faced ours.

Next time you come across one, pick it up and peel off those layers. You'll feel the smoothest surface you've felt yet. Smells quite nice too. They're also great for when you want to pop someone on the back of the head with.

BB! I forgot to mention that we used to do this as kids but it would make a nice weapon of choice, don't you think?

WE had these at my grandparents' home...they had several trees in their garden.
