Soursop (Annona muricata)
 

Fruits are heart-shaped with a rough green skin with soft fleshy spines. The flesh is very juicy and slightly acid, and produces a rich creamy juice which is very refreshing.

Soursop seeds and leaves are also used as a health remedy. We sell both seeds and leaves. Please email us for further details.

Climate Requirements Warm humid areas - can grow in most parts of the tropics and subtropics. Frost sensitive. Shallow root system makes them vulnerable to wind damage

Culture

Three years. Generally grown from seed, but some varieties are available.
Marketing Notes High level of acceptability at the fruit tastings.High potential as a puree as the fruit is difficult to eat due to the high fibre and seed content.

Superb dessert when puree is mixed at 30% intro vanilla icecream. Dries very well to an acid sweet leather.
