Soursop

Product Details

The Soursop tree can grow 9 metres high and flowers can be seen within 3-4 years. This type of tree grows in any kind of soil however; it prefers a rich and deep loam. A well-drained soil with the pH value of 6.1 to 6.5 is preferable. The soursop tree produces fruits throughout the year. A dry season period initiates flowering leading to a harvest peak 3 months later. The fruits are green, large, oval-shaped and prickly with a white fibrous flesh. They grow up to 20 centimetres and can weigh up to 10 pounds. Soursop’s flavor can best be described a cross between mango and pineapple. People often use the fruit to make beverages, ice-creams, and syrups. The seeds and bark should not be consumed as they contain poisonous alkaloids such as anonaine, muricine, and hydrocyanic acid.
