The sweet and tangy flavors from this unique fruit are irresistible

Soursop Trees produce remarkable fruit with a unique look and flavor. Those who have never seen a soursop before are often amazed by its elongated shape with bright green skin that has a soft prickly appearance.

However, aside from being famous for a distinct fruit soursops are also known for their amazing health benefits. The fruit and leaves contain a number vitamins and nutrients like potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin C and Vitamin A for healthy skin and energy.

Boil the leaves in water and make Soursop tea for even more nutrients and natural healing properties. Soursop leaves are believed to boost the immune system to help bodies fight off infections and viruses, as well as providing pain relief.

Those who are prone to back pain and illnesses commonly turn to soursop leaves for relief. Even those with eczema use the leaves to aid their skin.

Once you cut past the vibrant skin you will find the soursop's soft white and creamy flesh. Its zesty tropical aroma will fill the room and you'll have to give into your urges to bite into to soursop's tantalizing flesh that is filled with exotic flavors like mango, pineapple, and banana.

Soursop flesh is like a blended fruit smoothie with sweet and sour juices. You can't find this tropical blend of flavors anywhere else. Soursops are great for snacking as well as pairing with desserts like ice cream or pies.

Aside from producing tons of delectable fruit soursop trees also provide an exotic look with their lush green foliage and bright yellow flowers. The flowers pop against the soursop tree's long and slender leaves and draw the eye to their striking beauty.

Soursop trees will turn any space into a tropical get away indoors or out. This low maintenance tree is perfect for containers. If you live in an area that gets too cold for this tree simply place it in a pot and bring it indoors once the weather starts to get cold. 

Soursop trees are hard to find, so they are often in limited supply. Be sure to order yours before they're all gone.

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.

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.

I received my tree about a month ago. So far it is doing great. I transplanted it into a larger container that should keep for the next year. This is my first try with such a tree, so time will tell. It did arrive beautifully packaged and protected. I can't wait until it reaches the fruit bearing stage.

Good Customer Service, Good Produce
I purchased Soursop 3 gallons and received my Soursop yesterday, the plant looks so healthy, even the shipping takes little longer to South California. The price of the plant is okay compared with another nursery this plant much more than $100. Customer services people are very nice and professional, will recommend and do business with FGT again, thank you.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Soursop 'Guanabana' Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Soursop 'Guanabana' 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 'Guanabana' Tree again after the transplant is complete.

What fertiziler es best for soursop tree?
Guillermo G on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can treat your Soursop tree with 10-10-10 fertilizer. We recommend using one-half pound of fertilizer for your tree the first year. You can split the amount and feed your plants quarterly. In the second year you can increase the amount to 1 pound. You also can divide this amount and feed your tree quarterly. Each year after that, you can use 3 pounds of fertilizer and that divide that amount up quarterly.
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.

A shopper on Jun 23, 2014

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!
what happening with the plant in the fall and winter time if i plant that outside?
Gustavo V on Jul 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm in southern CA and so far so good. It did get quite cold in the winter a few days and had to cover my soursop and lychee from freezing. Leaves got a little burned from frost but their growing like crazy now. Unfortunately no fruit yet...
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!

How long after planting it will bear fruit?
Llura Q on Jun 18, 2015
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. I am crossing my fingers and hope to see fruit in the next month.

I plan to grow this tree in a container because the previous one planted in the ground died during the cold months despite all the covers I applied to the tree. Can you please tell me how to care for it as a container tree ? Thank you.
flora-75 on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When container planting a Soursop tree, use loose, sandy soil with an incorporation of compost of and/or prepared animal manure. Mix thoroughly. Do not fertilise until about 3 months of growth has passed, to avoid plant burn. Make sure that there is plenty of drainage through the container's bottom. Plant your soursop seedling with about 1/2 inch of the small trunk still exposed from the potting mix; water in thoroughly then water again a few hours later. Since should be able to rid the container of any air-pockets. You can now top-dress the soil with pea gravel (Chattahoochee pebbles.) Cover the entire top of your container with about 2 inches of these pebbles, then water in, again---until water readily drains out the bottom drain holes. Put containerised soursop into a patio location where there is only DIRECT morning sun. You don't want to stress the plant with too much summer's light and accumulated afternoon sun & heat. After about 90 days of the tree's planting, you can fertilise lightly with a timed-release plant food like Miracle Gro pellets in the green jug with the orange top. You tree should be grow rather rapidly now! Introduce it to a more sunny locale (South-facing exposure.) Continue to water, at least, still weekly (especially if no rains are forecasted.) Leave your Soursop in its container as is, but then when forecasts call for temperatures to be around a low 50 F. or (10 C.) bring your plant inside till next May, and situate your Soursop where in gets strong indoor light. Behind sheer curtains is excellent, as is a bathroom with a skylight in the ceiling. Rotate the plant a quarter tun every week to assure all leaves get equal sun. It is NOT NECESSARY to fertilise the Soursop when it's indoors. After early May, repeat the patio light plan as described above, This time however, you should lightly feed the plant with 4-5 tablespoons of Miracle Gro CITRUS & FRUIT TREE special granules, right after you put the plant outside (when night-time temperatures stay above 55-60 F. THe soursop should be (this year) situated where it will receive 6-8 hours of sunlight. Your containerised soursop should grow happily for maybe 8-10 more years! Good luck! Paul,The Wise Gardener!

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.
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.
