GOLDEN GUANABANA

    17 responses

tr starts with ...
This fruit was added to the Cassowary Coast branch of Rare Fruits Australia display at the recent Tully show .
I waited a few days until it was ripe and went to taste it . Very nice . Hopefully the few seeds I got will come true . There are several approach grafts being done on the tree . The foliage seems to burn a little , very common on variegated or aurea foliage plants.

Hi tr and Rich,
Haven't heard of this fruit since I travelled in South America in 1975 - in Colombia, drink stall owners blended up "hugo de guanabana" using the fruit flesh and milk - the best smoothie I have ever drunk! Are they available in any nurseries here or are they still too rare? (My picture is of a WA grafted flowering gum I planted in wood chip compost about three years ago - doesn't bloom for long but is over-the-top gorgeous when it does.

that flowering gum is beautiful Natalie.
i have one of the same, or very similar. i swear they grow better here on east coast oz than in their native Wa!
also they are a magnet for native animals.
mine has seen emperor gum moth caterpillars, rainbow lorikeets, wattlebirds, possums and even flying foxes.

Stunning flowering gum Natalie!

The guanabana, also known as a soursop, is widely available in australia. In fact daleys sells them. I agree, one of my favorite summer fruits - you should try them chilled!

BTW, you often find soursop drinks for sale in asian shops.

Hey Natalie...good pic! I have 2 grafted red flowering gums...I look forward so much to their flowers! Last yr the older tree was covered with blue banded bees...I hope they return this yr. These trees seem to grow even better in California too!

Australian flora is the most 'advanced' in the world (adaptation-wise)-Something I learnt in Biology class!

HI everyone.

Thanks for the nice comments about my flowering gum ! It does attract some bees, wattlebirds and honeyeaters, Culebra, but no possums or rainbow lorikeets as I am pretty close to the city. I have to admit that the picture substitutes for my lack of (as yet) productive fruit trees.

Thanks also for the info.about the alternative name for guanabana. You guys certainly know your stuff! The rum and soursop sounds yummy, Trikus. (Incidentally, I was born in Tully!) Hi Rich and Amanda. It's lovely to hear from people all over Australia!

Hi Natalie - this is a Leptospermum flavescens "Cardwell". A great plant - no pests (here anyway) easy to grow, waterwise (once established) and 2m x 2m - coastal no problem. I am a fan and have several.

Thanks Amanda - it is truly stunning and I will look for it locally. Problem is - I don't have enough garden space to grow everything I would like to. I may have to move house!
Excellent news -I have just placed an order with Daleys for a Guanabana/Annona muricata/Soursop tree. I would never have predicted this. Will have to remove something to make space. Also found degital camera, so new photos will be posted soon.

Cheers,

Natalie
