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.

Happy so far
Received it today, it was a little sparse and rough looking compared to the tea tree I ordered with it, but it also is a tropical that was coming from SC so it's understandable it wasn't in perfect condition... I think it will do much better here in tropical south Florida, will update

.66 gallon container and not 1 gallon!
I waited for a week before posting:
I've ordered two soursop and they both were DOA..Customer service was great and shipped out replacements. It arrived ~ week later and have no broken branches or brown leaves ( still need to work on their packaging though). Anyway, the bigger issue I have with the soursop plants is that they were shipped in .66 gallon pot and not 1 gallon as advertised. The plant/tree is like 2 feet tall at most; if they were truly one gallon, then the tree would had been 3-4 feet tall.

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.

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.

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.

Planting & Care

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

Soursop 'Guanabana' Tree Planting Diretions

The Soursop Guanabana tree is a low maintenance evergreen tree with an exotic look to their lush green foliage and bright yellow flowers. This variety known as “Annona Muricata” is also known for their amazing health benefits and cancer fighting properties (antioxidants). Soursop Guanabana trees are moderate growers, maturing to a height of 25-30 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide. This tree performs its best in USDA growing zones 9-11 and on the patio (potted) in zones 4-11.

Location: When planting the Soursop tree, find a location that receives full sun and moist, well draining soil. The tree will tolerate a wide range of soil type, but prefers one that’s slightly acidic.

Planting Instructions (in ground):
1) Dig your hole 3 times the width and slightly shallower than the root ball.
2) Loosen the soil, in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through.
3) Use your fingers to separate the the roots of your Soursop and gently position 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.
4) Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go.
5) Back fill the hole, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets that may have formed.

Planting Instructions (potted): The Soursop is also good for container growth if you happen to be in a zone too cold to add it to your landscape.

1) When selecting a container for your Soursop, be sure it has plenty of holes in the bottom as drainage is essential. The pot size should be at least 2 times larger than the pot it initially came in.
2) Fill the container halfway with soil, gently remove the tree from its original pot and position into the new one.
3) Fill in around the tree with the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
4) Lightly pack down the soil as you fill and then give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
5) Choose a location on the patio, back yard, front/side of the house providing it will receive full sun.
6) If bringing indoors for the winter, keep by a sunny window and water as needed. Also, avoid exposure to both drafts and heat form a window or vent.

Watering (in the ground): Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the sol to dry out completely before watering again as Soursops do not like wet feet. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of over watering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

Watering (potted): Stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been has been treated. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Soursop tree every 3 months with a 10-10-10 formula at half pound per year for the the first year. Increase to 1 pound the following year and 3 pounds for every year thereafter.

Pruning: Soursop trees don’t require much pruning once the initial shaping is attained. Only prune off dead branches or limbs once the harvesting is over.

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.

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.

Does it do well in a container? Live in SD.

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 long will it take to see the guanabana fruit?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Your tree will most likely need about a year to get used to its new environment and should produce fruit during its 2nd year after being planted.
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!

Gustavo V on Jul 30, 2015

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!

Starlene S on Jun 29, 2015

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.
