We used to refer to king coconut for mentioning a color. It's a kind of orange in color.

As with any fruit or vegetable, the color signals the health benefits. A King coconut is orange due to a compound called carotenoids. Carotenoids can improve immune function and lower risks for heart disease, vision problems, and cancer. Folate, Potassium, Bromium, and Vitamin C are also found in the orange nut.
