The Vietnam Trade Office in Australia has shared that Tra Vinh sap coconuts have been exported by plane to Australia in large quantities for the first time, and were distributed after a short time of marketing, with the total value of shipments sold in Australia at around AUD70,000 (over US$43,000).

Tra Vinh, fresh sap coconuts, officially introduced in Australia, the first time, large quantities, total value of shipments,

Sap coconut, a specialty with soft, thick pulp, is grown only in Cau Ke District, the southern province of Tra Vinh.

Previously, Tra Vinh sap coconut was exported to Australia in small quantities, mostly frozen. This is the first time that 2,000 fresh sap coconuts have been exported by air.

The shipment is the result of efforts made by Uu Dam Company and the Vietnam Trade Office in Australia towards the realisation of a programme on enhancing the branding and value of Vietnamese agricultural products in Australia.

With a retail price of AUD30-35 per each coconut, Tra Vinh sap coconuts are high value items, therefore, the Trade Office has deployed advertising on social media and is releasing a publication introducing cuisine made from sap coconut combined with other Vietnamese fruits to further popularise Vietnamese products in Australia.

Sap coconut, a specialty with soft, thick pulp, is grown only in Cau Ke District, the southern province of Tra Vinh where the soil is suitable for it. The variety has soft and thick pulp and is used mostly for desserts like coconut shakes and flesh mixed with milk, sugar and ice.

A mature sap coconut tree can produce 120-150 nuts a year, but only 40-50% have the soft and thick pulp that qualify them as sap, and the remaining have normal pulp.
