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.

I received my soursop tree, but was not pruned - can I prune it now or wait longer... was planted about a week ago....?
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.

How tall will the Sour Sop Tree get?
Ralph on Aug 18, 2014
Best Answer: These grow about 30-40 ft under correct conditions (protected from frost until mature, warm/humid weather). Can be trimmed to obtain a large "shrub" canopy. It's evergreen. Plant I got was about 3-4 ft tall in good condition, growing fast as soon as hit the ground.

if I buy a soursop tree now,when can I plant it? and when it has fruit?
tuy n on Oct 24, 2014
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.

Can this tree grow in northern Pennsylvania ?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2014
Best Answer: The Soursop Tree will grow in Northern Pennsylvania, how ever it will need to be planted in a pot and brought indoors during cold spells and during inclement winter weather. You may want to consider getting a grow light for keeping it indoors if you don't have a large sunny window that will give it about 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.

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.

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

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.
