Log in to view prices

The fruit of the soursop has a spiny outer skin with a soft, heavily seed-laden pulped interior. Each of these cauliflorous fruit may attain over a foot in length and, when ripe, the soft pulp is used in ice creams and sherbets. In fact, this small evergreen tree produces the largest fruit in the Annonaceae family.

Variety:

  • Sirsak Ratu (Zones 9-11)

Care Instructions

Plant soursop in a sunny location with well-drained, sandy soil with a pH of 5-6.5. Soursop trees should be irrigated regularly to prevent stress. When the weather turns cool in the winter, reduce water intake.
