English term or phrase: wet slices of coconut
She will be crossing a small piazza, empty but for you and her and a street vendor selling wet slices of coconut. -
my question is: wet here is referring to fresh? or does it mean "in juice", that is canned coconut slices?
Thanks a lot!

Asker: Hmm, the neutral would be hard to translate. Thanks a lot anyway, at least I know it's not an obvious meaning!

neutral  jccantrell: They are probably stored in coconut juice but 'wet' does not convey to me that they are fresh vs. canned, just that they are, ummmm, not dry.
