Soursop Plant

Soursop is the fruit of Annona muricata, a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree. The flavour has been described as a combination of strawberry and pineapple, with sour citrus flavour notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavour reminiscent of coconut or banana. The flesh of the fruit consists of an edible, white pulp, some fibre, and a core of indigestible, black seeds. The pulp is also used to make fruit nectar, smoothies, fruit juice drinks, as well as candies, sorbets, and ice cream flavourings. The fruit contains significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2.

Description

The soursop tree can reach the height of 30-feet and is soil tolerant, although it flourishes in well-drained soil. A tropical specimen, this low branching and bushy tree does not tolerate cold or strong sustained winds. A rapid grower, soursop trees produce their first crop three to five years from seeding. Propagation is usually through seeds; however, fibreless varieties can be grafted. Seeds should be washed before planting.

Soursop tree care involves copious mulching, which benefits the shallow root system. Soursop trees should be irrigated regularly to prevent stress, which will cause leaf drop. Very little pruning is required once the initial shaping is attained. You should only need to prune out dead or diseased limbs, which should be done once harvest is over. Topping the trees at 6 feet will facilitate harvesting.

Light: Full sunlight.

Water: Water when the soil feels dry to the touch.

Fertiliser: Fertilise with an organic fertiliser such as vermicast or chicken manure.
