Organic Soursop (Guanabana)


Annona muricata, also known as Soursop or Guanabana, is native to southern Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean.  The fruits vary in size, though some can grow to be quite large weighing well over five pounds. The fruit has a sensitive, thin peel with a characteristic horned outer texture and appearance similar to other fruits within the same family, such as Rollinia. The inside of the fruit is white or opaque and the texture is smooth, rich and creamy. The fruit contains inedible seeds which should be spit out, because it is impractical to remove the seeds with a utensil, though it can be done by hand if you plan on blending the fruit. The inedible seeds must be removed before blending or juicing this delicious tropical fruit. The fruit tastes very sweet with a hint of sourness. The fruit is abundantly flavorful, and features a range of what can best be described as ‘tropical’ flavors. These flavors are often described as being reminiscent of pineapple, green apple, strawberry, fruit punch and more. Ultimately, the fruit is very unique and the flavor is too. The fruit is picked while it is green, and it gradually turns to a lighter yellow-green as it ripens. The fruit is ripe when it is soft, it will give a little when you press on it. Unripe fruit should be left at room temperature, but once ripe it should be eaten. Uneaten fruit may be placed in a refrigerator and should be used within a few days. Avoid refrigerating unripe fruit as this may indefinitely suspend the ripening process.

All of our Soursop is 100% organic. Our Soursop is from sustainable farms located in the Caribbean. The remaining fraction of the Soursop we sell is produced by our own trees, and by our local partners throughout Miami and South Florida, during the summer season.

The hype surrounding this remarkable fruit may be linked to the plethora of naturally occurring essential vitamins and minerals it contains, which range from vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C, to folate, calcium, thiamine, magnesium, iron, potassium and more; or, it could just be the flavor!


Why Our Fruits Are the Best:

Our fruits are allowed to grow on the trees further into the growing season to allow proper fruit development for optimal flavor, vitamin and nutrient content.  Our fruits are picked from our own rare tropical fruit trees, from the trees of our local partners, collectors, and sourced internationally from sustainable organic niche farmers.  Follow us on Instagram @Fruitpeople_com
