Guanabana – Soursop

Soursop is a very large fruit found in tropical America. The Soursop skin is dark green and spiny (not prickly), while the meat is white and aromatic. It can be eaten raw when ripe, or in milk shakes, desserts, sherbets, ice creams. Frozen or canned soursop meat may be found in some Supermarkets and in Latin American stores.

My entire life, there was a Guanábana tree right by the dog’s kennels and the area where all the washing was done when I was little. That area was somewhat humid and it thrived. We used to get a lot of fruit from that tree.

Guanábana is native to the tropical regions of the Americas and the Caribbean. It is related to the Anón and the chirimoya, other tropical fruits that look similar.
