Looking for a new exotic fruit to add to your diet? Look no further than Annona muricata, also known as soursop or graviola. This evergreen tree produces dark green, prickly fruit with a slightly acidic taste when ripe. With a texture similar to a combination of strawberries and apples, and flavor notes of sour citrus and creamy coconut or banana, soursop is a unique addition to your palate. While sometimes promoted as an alternative cancer treatment, there is no medical evidence to support this claim. However, soursop has been shown to possess potential health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure. Tolerant of poor soil and native to tropical regions of the Americas, soursop can be grown in lowland areas between altitudes of 0 to 4000 ft. The fruit is used to make nectar, smoothies, and candy, and is a common ingredient for desserts and beverages in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia. Try growing soursop today for a taste of the tropics!
