Soursop is one Sweet Tree:

  • Medium height evergreen grows well in a variety of soils
  • Unique fruit with tropical flavor
  • Large yellow flowers add to the tree’s beauty
  • Produces abundantly, even in partial shade

What’s in a name?  Soursop has the answer

The Soursop is a tree that will have you smiling from the moment you plant it.  From its whimsical name to its strange looking fruit, you’ll fall in love with the Soursop, like its diehard fans who enjoy the many distinctive qualities of the tree.  Long and green, the oddly-shaped, prickly fruit resembles a Dr. Seuss character.  But the unrivaled, sweet yet musky taste is no laughing matter.  It’s delicious.  Covered in deep green leaves, the upturned branches play host to lovely yellow flowers that help accentuate the tree’s exotic look. Bet your neighbor doesn’t have one of these.

For Unique Fruit Flavor, Soursop is a Winner

If someone asked you to take a bite out of their Soursop, you might say “no thanks.”  But those who know the fruit aren’t fooled by the name.  Carefully slice through the stubbly green exterior and you’ll be greeted by a pineapple-like aroma. The pulp’s flaky white flesh has a slightly sweet, tropical, fruity flavor.  Some liken it to a pineapple, mango and banana all in one.  Use it in fruit smoothies, exotic cocktails and refreshing summer salads.  By adding the Soursop to your ingredients, every fruit or dessert dish you plan on making just got a whole lot better.

It's Easy to Plant your Soursop Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Soursop Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Soursop Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Soursop Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Was great until temperature dropped.....
I purchased the 1-gallon tree in August 2014. It was growing and green until 1 week ago. The temperature dropped down in the low 40's in Georgia. I left it outside; but after 2 days the leaves were brown and have fallen off the tree. I did not know it would not survive in these temperatures. The instructions did not indicate to bring inside. I have now brought the tree inside; but all the leaves are gone. The trees seemed alive still; but just no leaves. Hoping, in a few weeks I will see new buds growing. If not, I purchased the warranty and will get a credit.

Soursop Graviola
This tree is another one that I have just purchased this year. From what I have been reading, it has some very interesting medical properties. It is going to take quite a lot more research on my part; but, I am most interested in pursuing it further. It is very strong, very healthy and very beautiful.

Review Title
Received my soursop a little more than a week after I order nicely package and leaves are all green and looking healthy. I already make a ground preparations prior to its arrival and transfer it to the ground the same day. after about a week all its leaves turn yellow and start falling off, I guess the plant got a shock but it recover and now it has a lot of leaves all green and really looks great.

WALLY M on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: I would wait to prune it until early next spring... Since it is newly planted, I would let the plant concentrate on getting its root system established before subjecting it to pruning.

Can this plant grow in Orlando, FL area?
Carlos M on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: I wouldn't recommend in-ground planting of Soursop in the Orlando area. A fifteen gallon clay container would be a good vessel for this tree. I would leave in a sunny winter window from Nov.10th to Mar. 15th in the Orlando area. It will happily return to lush growth by May outside. Water needs are reduced to once weekly in winter, then back to 2 or 3 times a week outside in the Florida heat!

do you eat the skin of the soursop?
melissa b on Jun 16, 2015
Best Answer: No, you do not eat the skin. You spoon the pulp with an ice cream scoop, out of the skin, after having cut through the Soursop in half. Repeat the same process with both halves. The texture is very much like a sorbet; icy yet creamy. The soursop flesh can then be frozen in plastic Zip bags. The easiest way to use is to take as much pulp as you would like to serve, out of the bag, and drop into a blender. Sweeten to taste (but usually not necessary.) Pour proportional amounts of heavy cream into the blender vase. Grate a little fresh cinnamon and mace into the blender vase. A few pieces of sectioned citrus adds a nice complimentary flavor to the soursop pulp. After thorough blending, return to the freezer but instead of using the blender container, an oblong casserole dish will serve as your mixture freezing container. After two hours, remove from your freezer. Let soften for about 7 minutes at room temperature, (or 20 minutes in the refrigerator.) Scrape soursop/fruit blend with ice cream scoop to form a ball of sherbet (as dairy was added, it is no longer a sorbet, but a sherbet.) Drizzle grenadine syrup over the ball of soursop and fruit mixture. Return to freezer for 15 minutes, then serve with Biscos sugar waters, or Scottish shortbread cookies. A delightful, tasty, and cooling summer tropical dessert. It should be served with iced tea with passion fruit & raspberries, or very colourful sugar-frosted glasses of pomegranate-lemonade. This makes a crowd-pleasing fruity summertime dessert that will elicit kudos from around the dining table! Paul, The Wise Gardener!

I am in zone 6. Can it survive the winter or would it need to be in a greenhouse?
Starlene S on Jun 29, 2015
Best Answer: The soursop tree is tropical, and will not take cold temperatures. You need to bring your plant indoors (a greenhouse is great, as it gets fairly tall, likes humidity and needs high light levels) when the temperatures go below 50 degrees F. It will lose its leaves but survive in the 40's, but it absolutely won't take temperatures in the thirties or below.

Best Answer: I have had it for just about a year now, and it has not grown any fruit as of yet. I do live in zone 4 and it comes inside for fall and winter. It dropped it leaves at that time and then grew very nice ones right after that during the winter months, but no fruit. It is back outside and doing very well.

Best Answer: I purchased this tree on 8/3/2014, I transferred the plant into a huge container and added organic fertilizer and plant food. I have it on my patio; not planted in the ground. It seems to be easier to manage a container with my added items versus the ground's ph balance. The tree is growing and still green. I am not sure when it will bear fruit. Also, I purchased the plant warranty.

how do you know what zone?
kenlyn d on Jan 13, 2015
Best Answer: The USDA has just introduced a new plant hardiness map that better reflects recent weather trends, and also serves our outlying states & territories far better. The new plant hardiness map has ratings for plant hardiness in Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Guam. They added Zones 12 & 13 and give a better, more accurate mapping of Zone 11 which is now marked 11A and 11B. Soursop is happiest in Zones 12-13 but will grow well in 11B and will survive in 10B and 11A. Over 55 F. in winter keeps it all green with no cold "burn" spots on the fruits, nor leaf defoliation at about 45 F.

What are the health benefits of the tree?
Alice C on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: The nutrients present in soursop are amino acids, ascorbic acid, calcium, carbohydrates, iron, phosphorus, fibers, thiamine and riboflavin.

The ascorbic acid which increases the amount of antioxidants in the body and also help keep a number of infections and disorders at bay.

Soursop is also used as a remedy for cough, diarrhea, fever and indigestion. Including supplements of soursop will bring down the intensity of these conditions and also enhance recovery.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Some dormant trees

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
