Hi Sharon, I am growing one in Sydney but it lives in a heated greenhouse from May to October.

It is almost 3 years old and growing well.

You can check out what else I grow on my FB page https://www.facebook.com/urbanfruitfarmer/

The only trees in a greenhouse over winter are a soursop and dwarf jackfruit.

Hi Sharon,

I have two Soursops with me here on the Central Coast. They are only small and still in pots (one in a supertube and the other in a 175mm pot).
This is the first winter for both of them here (they won't be here next winter though). Both have been outside and stood up to the winter conditions we have experienced so far (although this winter hasn't been as cold as some we've had before).
Where I am on the Central Coast has virtually identical climate conditions to Sydney's North Shore. Temperature extremes can vary around the Sydney metro area, but the coastal and harbour regions are moderate and don't experience as high a range of temperatures compared to other areas. So one person, in Dural, Camden or Windsor for example, can have much colder conditions than you'd experience. It is possible that a marginal tropical plant may survive ok in some areas and not others. The North Shore is one of the more likely areas to give a marginal tropical fruit tree a go.
There may also be a difference between surviving and fruiting. My experience only suggests that it may be possible to grow Soursop in moderate coastal areas of Sydney, but not guarantee fruit. Someone else's experience would have to report on that.
btw. The smaller one I have is about 15 - 20 cm tall and has wilted badly due to lack of water (twice!). It came back both times and the most recent occasion was only in the last couple of days (early July). So from this, I assume it is less concerned about the temperature, as it is with lack of water.
Good luck. I personally think you should just give it a go.

Hi Sharon

Do you see any soursop trees in Sydney with fruits?The answer is no.However it didnt stop me from growing one in a pot for 3 years .Mine was healthy but died very sudden in its fourth year.Growing something outside its normal climate is all part of the fun.Getting fruit is a bonus.
