Soursop

Has white flesh wrapped around seeds - similar to custard apple. Put ripe white flesh in blender with lemon, sparkling miniral water, crushed ice for a refreshing summer drink. | J Martinez - Naremburn, NSW 28-Jun-2008

Soursop

Where I live these trees grow wild. The ones around here are Deciduous, they lose all there leaves through the dry period, and then re shoot and flower in Oct- Nov | John Cernusco - Giru, NQ 08-May-2010

Soursop

Good fruit to eat and has various healing qualities | Ivo Rodrigues - Sydney, NSW 11-Nov-2010

Soursop

An unfortunate name for such a delicious fruit. It is far from sour. Has the texture of an apple and tastes of a cross between a pineapple and a banana. Easy to grow. Even in the cooler climate of south-eastern Qld. | Min Taylor - Rosevale, QLD 25-Feb-2013

This was our first tree - had one fruit the first year - but what a beauty!  Second year had a couple but they went 'black' and were no good. Third year we had 17 - beautiful.  My wife makes Soursop Scones and Soursop Ice Cream - to die for.

It is a tree, though still small, that my father grew from a seed for me. I like the flavour and you can do a lot with the fruit like make ice-cream etc. Looking forward to it growing and fruiting.

This fruit tastes great, like lemon sherbet. I have two trees and both a doing well despite a fair amount of neglect. One is in the ground in full shade, the other in a pot with moderate sun.

Was a seedling. Got it a couple of months ago .

It had grown almost double in size . But all the leaves is starting to get rusty and falling off now. Just hopes I will start to kicking again as we go back to Spring. Very slow growing plant, perhaps due to being put in pot it is the way it is .

This is my favourite fruit. It tastes like a more delicate version of custard apple, with hints of banana, pineapple and passionfruit, creamy and a little bit grainy, with no acid. I went to PNG a couple of times as a kid/teenager, and first ate it there (and was hooked). Occasionally you see tinned juice in Chinatown supermarkets, but the fresh fruit is hard to come by in Australia. I am trying to grow one in Brisbane too. So far so good (it loses its leaves in winter but grows in summer). The mature trees are pretty too. Diana.

I'm thinking I might pot this one back up. I know they grow quite large but I should be able to manage it OK. The most important thing is, It's going into a large polytunnel house that I'm constructing. That way it will grow a lot faster and go off it's head if it so desires.

They are huge trees which my grandma used to grow on her plantation when i was a kid back in Singapore. :)

Bought from Daley Nursery, I bought all my fruit trees here, because they all arrive healthy and in good condition. I haven't lost a single plant yet (touch wood). My Soursop has been in the ground for 6 months and has a long way to go. It's growing in the coastal area of southeast Qld. It is slow growing at this stage. This could be a number of things, it loves the tropical weather (currently in subtropics) and that it hasn't been in the ground long. It will die if too cold and the new leaf will burn in hot winds (hates winds in general, hot winds even more). I have it surrounded by other plants as a sheild. I normally don't baby plant's just put them in and let them toughen up or die. I am however monitoring this plant more because I want to know the Soursop requirements and problems in less than the ideal environment. Will keep you updated. 11/02/2017 Just notice darkness on the stems near a few leaves which seem to be drooping, hoping it's not fungus. I made up some nitrosol solution and gave it a feed. It has been very hot today 37 and tomorrow will be 40 so will see how it handles the heat. Also will see if the feed helped.... Yes the feed helped leaves got greener. Loved the heat 40. I always let the ground dry completely before watering again. This plant does not like it too wet. I will upload another picture in another six months.

Danny N1's Edible Fruits
Update: 830 days 8hrs

Soursop is an amazing fruit which i love but is ridicously expensive to buy from the asain supermarkets! very hard to find in coles or woolworths here in Adelaide - hence i am attempting to grow my own!. I will see how this one goes - if it survives an Adelaide Winter in my micro climate set up then i will purchase a Daleys grafted Soursop.

Plant is going strong in my enclosed pergola area it's shaded from the hot winds during the hot days and cold winds at night, producing alot of new growth - leaves are an attractive glossy light green color. Plant seems to love the filtered light from the perspec's of the pergola and the shade cloth semi enclose's all my tropical plants - keeping in the heat and moisture ( humidity) i am guessing is around 60% to 70% in summer, after a water in the evening.

Have potted it in a 430mm pot with plenty of organics and mulch - the pot provides excellent drainage after i have turned it into an air prunning pot.

Height 1 Feet

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Seasol - Fortnightly

Pest Control: Ants will try to farm all sorts of other bugs onto the Soursop plant so check once in awhile.
